MacIIci hardware address
Anyone know how to get the hardware address for an old Mac IIci? Would have been easy if MACOS 8 or 9 supported 68k macs.

Thanks, Bill

Actually, it is the same way you would do it on MacOS 8/9... Use Apple System Profiler. It works under 7.x as well. All you have to do is to get a copy onto the computer, fire up the networking (unfortunately you do need to have some network activity for this to work, no activity, no numbers), and open up ASP and read them out. Wonderful littel program!

Failing that, try:

1. GetMyAddress - a useful (free?) utility created by AGGroup.

2. If running Open Transport: open either the AppleTalk or TCP/IP control panels, and do Get Info.

If running classic networking: open the MacTCP control panel, and option-click on Ethernet.

I don't know of a way of finding the hardware address from the classic Network control panel. I assume, btw, that by "hardware address" you mean "48-bit Ethernet MAC address", else the above is a bit useless.

I've tried running Apple System Profiler on my PB170 with System 7.5.5; ASP might run on system 7.x but it won't run unless it has a PPC processor, so no luck on the 68k Macs.
