Setting IP Spoofing with HPE LoadRunner and HPE Performance Center

IP spoofing is the solution when performance testing requires multiple virtual users to use multiple IP addresses from a single host machine (load generator) to keep the web server from blocking those virtual users. Also IP spoofing is needed when the hardware configuration under test balances load across a “farm” of several (web or database) servers. IP spoofing enables each load generator to “spoof” the server into thinking it is using many different IP addresses.
