is there any way to make a virtual network adapter in windows (that has its own mac address, and lets me bridge it to another connection? So in the end, it'll be like another physical connection that's connected to its own internet.)
I noticed VMware connects its virtual OS to the internet by creating a virtual adapter and bridging it to a physical adapter. It has its own mac address.
I found something called a Microsoft Loopback Adapter, but I dont think thats it, is it? I want to be able to bridge it, and have programs bind to that specific adapter, but have it still have its own virtual mac address.
