VPN Clients all have same MAC Address!?

We are deploying softphones for remote employees in our company. We currently are using Cisco 2921's with VPN enabled.

All of the clients who connect with the Cisco VPN x86 client are getting 00:00:00:00:00:00 for their MAC Addresses, and all of the Cisco VPN x64 bit clients are all getting the same MAC Address, although it is different than the x86 clients.

This is causing the softphones to not work, as they all need to be sending independant MAC addresses.

Is there something I am missing, or is this the only way it can be done?

Thanks,

Andrew

Andrew,

Believe me this has been brought up with development many times and so far there is no plan that I'm aware of to change this behavior.

You're better of picking manually the MAC you send in registration request (which is what I assume is going on) as other designated interface.
