We are using Toughbook CF-19's with Sierra Wireless MC5725 to connect. I have begun using Faronics Deep Freeze Enterprise to lock them down. The Deep Freeze administration console uses the MAC address of the remote computer to differentiate machines. Windows XP appears to always use 00-53-45-00-00-00 for this virtual adapter. Anyone know how to change this so each machine has a unique physical address on the PPP/SLIP adapter? I already tried MAC spoofing tools like SMAC, Macshift and the like with no success.
xp does not assign mac addresses. They are burned into the nic by the manufacturer. You can go into advanced properties of the nic and make your own mac but I would advise against that since your assessment is in error.
Thanks for that clever response, Wanderer. I am trying to alter the physical address on a virtual PPP adapter, like those used by XP to connect to cellular data networks, not a physical NIC. Anyone else?
