Re: MAC adress in Fedora



it is exactly like Phil Hannent said, it is a security issue. At
Twente University we have a rather large network. And to avoid
everybody to gain acces they use (amongst other things)  MAC adress
filtering. And to register a MAC adress you have to be a student or
employee.
This way they (system operators) always know who is responsible for
which computer.

btw. I also found the MAC in System Tools > Hardware Browser > Network Devices
(like I said, i'm a complete newbie, i only know windows. Graphics are
your friend :-)  )
