10.3: Change Ethernet MAC address from the Terminal
Authored by: cynikal on Nov 07, '03 01:08:28PM

I've tried this back in Jaguar, i saw the option there already but I don't remember it actually doing anything.

Isn't the hardware address hard-coded into the network interface cards's media access control chip?

I don't think you can override something in hardware witih software.

Linux and BSD have been able to do this for years. The absence in Darwin was a bit strange. It is nice they implemented this.
