Is there a way to IP Spoof from a Cloud Load Generator?

I have a possible requirement to configure IP Spoofing on the Cloud Load Generator. Is there a way to do this for Neotys Cloud Load Generators?

Dear Susan,

Why do you need IP Spoofing? There may be current or coming other solutions to meet your need.

Hi Christophe, We still have several projects with a requirement for IP spoofing or something similar. What new solutions are you speaking about?

I have no specific idea in mind yet. Do you need IP spoofing for IP based load balancing or for another reason? Typically for which load and for which number of Load Generator?

Hi Christophe: Yes I commonly have Sticky IP configurations on load balancers, which means if I am load testing, say 10 web application servers, regardless of the load required, I need to spin up 10+ load generators to test the load balancing requirement.

Ok, thanks for clarifying this, making sure we don't miss something. Unfortunately, it is not possible to assign several IP addresses to Cloud Load Generators.
