How to configure MAC Address Spoofing for Virtual Network Adapters

In order to enable the Spoofing Of MAC Address in the virtual network adapter settings, there is a new option available in Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V and Hyper-V Server 2008 R2. Consider, if you’re not interested to select the option and disallow MAC Address Spoofing, the following rules will be enforced.

• The Virtual Switch Port that is able to connect the Virtual Network Adapter can send and receive the packets that have any valid MAC address.
• MAC address of the Virtual Network Adapter can’t be moved or associated with another Virtual Switch Port.
• The Virtual Switch Port wont forward unicast flooded packets to the Virtual Network Adapter.
• Moreover, it is not possible to override the Virtual Network Adapter MAC Address configuration by using the Network Address Key in the Virtual Machine Registry.



You can find the MAC Address Value that contains the Configuration of a Virtual Network Adapter including the Network Address Key from the following key HKEY_LOCAL_MAChINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{ 4D36e972-e325-11Ce-BFC1-08002Be10318}. Here, each of the four-digits numbers 0000, 0001and so on are the subkeys and the tree represents a particular network adapter that you can easily identify through its DriveDesc value.
You can learn the MAC Address on other ports by selecting the option in to enable MAC Address Spoofing.

• The Virtual Switch Port that is able to connect the Virtual Network Adapter can send and receive the packets that have any valid MAC address.
• This Virtual Switch Port dynamically learns the new MAC Addresses and the Virtual Switch is able to add them in its forwarding table.
• Then, the Virtual Switch port will be able to receive and forward unicast flooded packets to the Virtual Network Adapter.
• You can override the virtual network adapter MAC address configuration using the NetworkAddress key in the virtual machine registry.
• Now, you can override the Virtual Network Adapter MAC Address configuring by using the Network Address Key in the Virtual Machine Registry.

Therefore, the Virtual Network Adapter will be permitted to receive the Unicast Flooded packets, if you place the Virtual Network Adapter in promiscuous mode and enable MAC address spoofing.

New Micro battery, power packed for high performance

For a size of a few millimetres, the new micro-batteries are powerful enough to jump start a car battery and then quickly charge the cell phone. Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed the micro batteries which can be used to drive compact electronic devices and new applications for radio communications. The micro batteries are so good that they can even out power the super capacitors. The results were published in ‘Nature Communications’ in the April 16 issue. The micro batteries have energy and power and with the researchers tweaking the structure of the micro batteries a little bit, its use can be for wide range applications.

The high performance of the micro battery is based on its 3-dimensional micro-structure. Based on the design of fast charging cathode by Professor Paul Braun’s group, researchers developed the matching anode and integrated it with the fast charging cathode at a micro-scale and made a complete battery with high performance. These batteries cou…
