Can someone tell me about IP spoofing. I am a beginner and want to know that how do we actually allocate IP's to the virtual users and if subnetting is the way than how do we actually do it. I referred to silk performer help but did not get much information for the same. I shall appreciate any help for the same.
IP spoofing is the simulation of actual IP addresses (in a hardware sense) with the use of your automated tool, where each Virtual Users is assigned a 'logical' IP address, rather than each having the IP address of the hardware which is generating your Load.
This is generally specific to each tool as to how this is acheived. I would suggest that if the documentation has proved fruitless that you try the Silk Performer forum on this site or contact your local product support office.
