I tried "/etc/init.d/network" and it failed. Gave me lots of error messages. Here are a few:
ERROR: Can't change MAC: interface up or not permission: Device or resource busy
/etc/init.d/network: network-functions: command not found
/etc/init.d/network: check_device_down: command not found
Current MAC: 00:0C:33:ED:21:AB...this is eth0
Faked MAC: 00:0C:33:ED:21:AB
MACs are the same!!
When I reboot the system the Current MAC and Faked MAC are different. The Current MAC address listed doesn't match any of the interfaces. The Faked MAC address listed is for eth0. I also noticed right after the "Faked MAC" line I got the following error message:
/etc/rc3.d/S10network: network-functions: command not found
I'm not sure what to do and, if you haven't already guessed, I don't have a lot of experience w/Linux.
Not sure if this has anything to do with this. In the /etc/init.d/network file I found the following line:
/usr/local/bin/macchanger -m 00:0C:33:ED:21:AB eth0
thanks again for your help
