Last day someone asked me, is there a way to spoof the MAC address of a NIC card on Physical host, here is the answer:

For a supported network card one can spoof the MAC address form inside the OS regardless its physical or virtual server(assigning Static or mac address spoofing on a VM).

1… Go to NIC card’s properties and select Configure,
