Understand Network Security Policies of VMware (Mac Address Change and Forged Transmits)
Posted on 2014-12-29
Both the security Policies (Mac Address change and Forged Transmits) are concerned with allowing or denying differences between the initial MAC Address in the configuration file (.vmx file) and the effective MAC address in the guest operating system. I would like to understand why these security policies MAC address change and Forged transmits is set to Accept in VMware standard switches where as these policies are set to Reject on distributed switch?
Can anyone help me to understand why these settings are set different in Standard and Distributed switch?
