MAC adresses are unique...

What do you want to do exactly?

mac search

arp-scan or arpscan

I prefer the options and output of arp-scan but either will do.

Do you have Dag added to your repository? http://dag.wieers.com/home-made/apt/packages.php

I see arp-scan & arpscan in there.

Yes I use Fedora Core 5. I have them listed in the Dries rpm repository.

Although I don't understand WHY you'd want to change your mac address. If it ain't broke don't fix it.

Hi,
thank you for the response, I looked up the web page and downloaded the arp-scan package for my linux. I just have some probs with the installation, it cannot find several lib6 files ... . But I think there is something wrong with my Fedora Distribution and the yum package.

regards
Tobias

I just need to change the mac address temporary, to access a specific network, but before I do change I want to make sure that I do not interrupt any network services.
