10.3: Change Ethernet MAC address from the Terminal
Authored by: GlowingApple on Aug 20, '04 10:36:43AM

While we're on the topic of different types of NIC's, can anyone tell me what the gif0 and stf0 devices are? I have a G4 1.25gHz PowerBook. There is also the firewire port (fw0), the ethernet port (en0), the airport (en1), and the typical loopback (lo0). I would assume one is bluetooth, but I'm not really sure which one. Looks like from ifconfig, the gif0 supports PTP an multicast. The stf0 doesn't seem to support any protocols from what I can tell.

You were asking about strange network codes:

i use 'MenuMeters' to give me a menubar readout of processor useage and the network. it provides a drop down menu with all the network connections, with their codes and their full name / descriptions. try that?
