Fake MAC address

We can set a fake MAC address for a network adaptor using ifconfig.

And the setting can be written into /etc/network/interface as

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static

hw ether xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx

  1. can you please provide me more information about how to set a fake mac address for a laptop to use the same IP address that has been assigned for a PC using the PC’s MAC Address?

  2. I am not very clear with your problem. Isn’t IP automatically assigned? Can’t you know both IP and MAC address you intend to use? In fact, I haven’t used this approach for a long time. You may like to search the internet for more up-to-date information.
