Several KM-TEST Loopback adapters in the same L2 broadcast domain RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, Community and Microsoft network experts.

    Is there a way to join two or more KM-TEST loopback adapters to the same L2 broadcast domain? I coult loke to send a L2 network paclet from (first) KM-TEST-1 with DST FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF and capture it on (second) KM-TEST-2 (the same as over physical connections) but this traffic shouldn't be passed through other interfaces (i would like to keep in within Windows instance).

    This worked well on XP/2003 with default config but it doesn't work since 7/2008.

    Thank you in advance.

    If this question is urgent, I would suggest you open a case with Microsoft ,more in-depth investigation can be done so that you would get a more satisfying explanation and solution to this issue.

  • Microsoft said - unsupported. But it means actually nothing because they always say unsupported when TSE shouldn't escalate question to next line by their internal procedures/rules. But I'm MSCE and I never trust them so I found a solution on built-in components. Unfortuntely it doesn't work in Server Core due to absense one of required components.

    Anyway, this question can be closed. Candy, thank you for the reply. Unfortunately you just pointed me to well-known information so I don't mark your reply as answer. It's a pity. Sorry for that.

    Best regards.
