    Is there a way to create another network interface on my Mac, with it's own (fake) MAC address?

    I know I can do the following:

    ifconfig alias en1 10.0.0.3

    Then I will have that IP address in addition to my existing IP address. But I want to make another interface so it looks like there are two machines on the LAN instead of one machine with 2 IP's

    I know when I create a VM in VirtualBox, if I used bridged networking it makes the virtual look like an entirely different computer on the network, with it's own IP address and MAC address.
