LAA (Locally Adminstered Address)

Post by kovax » Tue Nov 21, 2006 7:54 am

How is this set in Linux? My compay has the router setup to only allow our given LAA to access the internet. I have fully migrated from Windoze to Linux and need to have all the rights and access that I had on my Windoze box.

Thanks

You should be able to just add a "MACADDR" variable to your interface config (/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0):

e.g. MACADDR=12:34:56:78:90:ab

Don't get it confused with HWADDR which is used for identifying the proper card by burned in address. Optimally you would have both variables. HWADDR containing the burned in address and MACADDR containing the user defined address.

See also the Linux section here:
