    Dear Parallels Support Team,

    I am using a MacBook Pro with an M2 chip, running Ventura 15.3.2 with Parallels 19 Pro in bridge mode. Additionally, I have a virtual machine (VM) with Windows 11 and using Parallels 19 Pro for Network Design Concepts involving L2 MAC Filtering. The issue I am currently encountering is that the VM with Windows 11 retains the original MAC address of the Guest OS, which, in this case, is Ventura 15.3.2.

    How can I configure the VM bridge settings so that Windows 11 can use its own MAC address instead of adopting the MAC address of the Guest OS?
