Can I change the MAC address of an interface (Port) of Cyberoam?

Following are the steps to change MAC address of an interface:

1. Logon to CLI console using SSH or Telnet

2. Go to Option 4 Cyberoam Console

3. At the command prompt, execute the following command:

Corporate>ip link set address

where interface - interface whose MAC address is to be changed

MAC address - MAC address which is to be assigned to the interface
Below given sample screen displays original as well as changed MAC address.



This change in MAC address will be effective even after restarting management services (RMS) but changes will be lost after rebooting the appliance.

This feature is also called “MAC Cloning”


Note

Do not change MAC address if Appliance is configured for HA (High Availability) as Cyberoam High Availability feature works on Virtual MAC (VMAC) address concept.
