    Re:Adapter Address

    Is it the MAC address you are after?

    If so just type ifconfig in a terminal & look for the eth0 entry (if its the only nic). Should list it as HWaddr

    Regards

    Re:Adapter Address

    If it's the only NIC card inside, ifconfig eth0 works well and it's specific so that you don't have to look for it.

    Re:Adapter Address

    Shouldn't it be the same MAC as the one registered in Windoze?

    Your MAC adress will be identical. Even if you use VMWare, the virtual adapter will still be the original MAC, since any packets spewed out of the NIC will be originating from that adapter. Pretty much, without putting your NIC into promiscuous mode, there is a very high improbability of your MAC being different. You may, however, have different IPS for the same MAC concurrently.

    Sounds to me like he has two different computers, in which case the MAC addresses will very definitely not be the same. :P
