Virtual machine uses private IP and different MAC data? (noob question)



I have a noob question:


I notice if I use a virtual machine my ipconfig/all data says that I have a different mac address and diferent private IP address.


If I register to a forum with virtal machine, can they see I registered with a virtual machine?

Can they connect me with an account registered with my real computer and same router?


Kind regards.

  1. These are more basic tcp/ip questions than vmware.

    Each device in a network, be it a real device or a virtual one must have a unique mac address.

    If this VM and your real PC are behind the same router, then they will see your public ip for each registration. And then yes, they will connect the two, if they care about such things.
