- This lookup tool will query the IEEE database and present the assigned information in realtime. It is possible to lookup by MAC address and see the assigned organisation or to lookup an organisation and see all the assigned MAC addresses.
- Our API was designed from the ground up with performance in mind. We have stripped our API down to the bare essentials, optimized our servers, and organized our data so that whether your app is making 100 requests a day, or 100,000, you'll never be left waiting.
We can find mac address (physical address) of a computer using the command ‘getmac‘. This can be used to get mac address for remote computers also. Below are few examples on how to use this command. It works on XP, Vista, Windows 7, Server 2003 and Server 2008 operating systems.
Get mac addresses from CMD
Check Mac For Problems
In short the answer will be you can't. It is usually not possible for a person to get the MAC address of a computer from its IP address alone. These two addresses originate from different sources.
Just run the command getmac to get the mac addresses. Find an example below.
This command does not show mac addresses for the network connections which are disabled. You can run ncpa.cpl and check which NICs are disabled. Further, I have received comments that this command does not help identify the mac address for a specific device. For example, if I need to get the mac address for my WiFi card, output of getmac command is not helpful. We can use ipconfig command to deal with this.
Get mac address of a remote computer
We can retrieve the mac addressses for a remote computer using nbtstat command.
Alternatively, We can run the below command to retrieve the mac addresses of a remote computer.
remote_computer : Full name of the remote computer or IP address
username and password are of the account on the remote computer.
If you do not want to specify the password, you can skip /p parameter. You will be prompted to enter the password and the command execution will take place after that.
Check Mac Address For Ip
Using getmac command we can retrieve the mac addresses of the machines running windows OS only. If you try this for a Linux machine you would get the error “The RPC server is unavailable.”
If you provide incorrect password, the command would fail with the error message “Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password.”
