Any way to cange the MAC Address on the Untrust interface in PanOS 4.1.2?

L0 Member

Hello,  Im new to PaloAlto and am using PanOS 4.1.2 on a PA-500.

I was wondering if there is any way to change the MAC address on the WAN Interface so that my IP address stays the same.

Currently I have several systems in my home lab and if my MAC address changes, I will receive a new IP address which will cause me some issues.

I know that the advertised MAC address can be changed on other firewalls from other manufacturers, but I cannot find the way to change it in PanOS.

Any help in much appreciated.

I would like this feature as well, it would be nice to spoof a MAC address.... In case anyone is wondering why, my isp reserves the mac address on the provided router...

I know this thread is more then 2 years old, but we are now on version 6.0.1 and still no feature for changing the MAC address ?

I was looking for this feature as I also need to keep my external address because I have subscriptions like at spamhaus for certain feeds and they need to know my external ip-address.

And I don't want to notify them all every time my ip-address changes.

So when can we finally expect this feature ? In which build will it be included ?
