/sbin/ifconfig -a
will show the MAC address for eth0, if that's what you need.

Take a look at
lspci -v

What i got for etho was, so i think, bge0..

what im trying to set up is an inclusive ipf firewall. Im using the example file for ipf.rules as stated in the doc on However, to test my firewall i block out ssh saved it, then ran ipf -Fa -f /etc/ipf.rules <enter> then tried to re-log through ssh and i was able to. Why is that? any clues as to what i am doing wrong?
