VMware, MAC addresses and EPi Server



I'm a new EpiServer developer looking to install EPiServer 6 on a new virtual image using VMware workstation 7.1. However, it has been drawn to my attention that EPiServer needs to know the MAC address of my developer PC for it to function. Correct?

During installation VMware created/installed two network adapters, namely VMnet1 and VMnet8. They of course have their own MAC addresses.

My question is which MAC address should I state when purchasing a development license? Can the link between license key and MAC address be changed without cost in future?

Yes you can change the MAC-address for a license without any cost.
Tha MAC-address should be the one from within the virtual machine, open a commandprompt and run ipconfig /all

Good to know. I took a chance that the correct MAC address will be that of VMnet1 so that's what I supplied for registration. Let's hope it works. :)
