Linux

  • As the root user (or user with appropriate permissions)
  • Type "ifconfig -a"
  • From the displayed information, find eth0 (this is the default first Ethernet adapter)
  • Locate the number next to the HWaddr. This is your MAC address
  • The MAC Address will be displayed in the form of 00:08:C7:4C:8C:06.

Example "ifconfig -a" output:
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:08:C7:4C:8C:06
