you must type SUDO
Authored by: t3hl33t on Oct 22, '04 04:12:41AM

If you don't type the sudo it gives you that. You need to type sudo before it or you will get
ioctl (SIOCAIFADDR):permission denied

Also, this does work, the ip in the GUI will not change because it doesn't refresh.

Try this and see if it works
Open a terminal window and run these commands

sudo ifconfig en0 ether
(write down the number after ether, this is your mac address)
sudo ifconfig en0 ether <enter a new mac address here>
sudo ifconfig en0 ether
(compare the number with the written down one)
