Can Terminal Server (Server 2003) Issue Multiple Mac Address Leases?

I am trying to configure Cisco IP Phones to run over terminal services, so that each client is assigned their own softphone when they log in.  However, the softphone devices are recognized by Mac address and not IP address.  I therefore need an individual Mac Address for each softphone/terminal services client.

I realize that mac addresses are usually based on the network card, of which there are only two in the server.  Is there a way to enter/assign additional Mac addresses in terminal services, or is there another work-around?

Not that I'm aware of native support, but take a look at for creating virtual adapters.  Have you contacted Cisco to see if this config is supported?

Thanks very much.  Will investigate the NT kernal info further.  CIsco do report that they work over terminal services, but it is difficult to find out how.

Upcoming Server2008R2 will have support for virtual IP addresses, so you nead to wait until the release of R2 in October and upgrade the server to the new version.
