How to find MAC addresses


I knew how to do it before and now I cannot for the life of me remember.

Can I use Nmap to get the addresses for everything on my LAN / WLAN?

What about ARP?

How do I find the MAC of the NIC of the machine that I am on?

Thanks,
JP.

Hey Farslayer, thanks.

We've talked before, I'm straight across the lake from you.

Aren't you supposed to end every sentance with 'Ehh' ? j/k (that's what the McKenzie brothers would have us believe )

Hope all is going well for you.

Yup, in real life I do say ehh a lot. And I call people hosers and tell them to take off (especially my kids).

When I was a kid I thought that I lived in Cleveland because the Cleveland TV stations were what we watched on TV. Channel 43 was our fav. It was a sad day when Fox got the Big League contract and WUAB quit broadcasting the Tribe's games. VERY sad!

As my kids like to say; good times.

Take care,
JP.
