Simulate in Windows that the physical network interface is connected

  adobe, networking, nic, windows

I use Adobe Acrobat XI Pro on a physically disconnected PC and I want to download the CRL from a local server but Adobe – checking the traffic with Wireshark – does not send any packets to the network, not even to the loopback interface.

If I connect the network interface to a private network everything works fine and the traffic – captured with Wireshark – goes to my local server.

How to trick Adobe into sending the CRL request to my local server even though the network interface is physically disconnected?

Is it possible in Windows to simulate that the Physical Network Interface is connected?
