rob.rice, for a web site to get your MAC address, it would need to somehow coerce you into providing it. It's not going to happen by just looking at the traffic. The Internet Protocol (IP) resides on the network layer of the OSI model, while Ethernet (which uses the MAC addresses) is a data link and physical layer technology.

Only to a certain extent, as there are several other ways to detect when banned members do this sort of thing. And no, I won't get into details as I don't believe discussing this will have a positive impact on the LQ community. The best thing you can do is NOT get banned, then you don't need to worry about any of this. Seriously, why are you asking about this?

Hint: It will work but you are just suppose to learn your lesson.
You still need to create a new email and new account with your new ip address.

did that part through a proxy
but my computer is still sending out some kind of finger print
even booted another O/S kopex the only thing I can think of
in common is the MAC address
did the challenge once by switching computers (one that's not on the wifi router )but I was told it was meant to be done on the same computer same set up

Your either on crack or you no know nothing of how packets work, if i capture some packets from a random IP who connects to the server all i will get for a MAC address is the last hop, this can be verified by knowing what values go were in a hex dump of the packet capture, since we know that the MAC is at layer 2 this mean that this first 6 digits in hex is the MAC address of the requester (clent) and digits 7 to 12 are the servers MAC, now if you were to monitor all data coming and going from these two Ip's from the server side you will find that your 2 MAC addresses never change but if you type ifconfig you will also find that none of those MAC addresses that are in the hex dumps belong to you. meaning that no matter how much blackhatery you think you know, hex dumps don't lie, unless you have a program that finds and transmits the MAC address in encapsulated DATA there is NO WAY the web ever sees your MAC.


I won't help you get around a ban, but it can be done.
