Subject Re: UUID MAC configuration
Date Fri, 12 Jan 2007 20:46:38 GMT

Getting the MAC address is problematic - normally it requires native 
code (which may use OS-level function calls or a native SNMP API, which 
is one of the approaches I have seen).

Two options:

1. If you are using JDK 6, you may be in luck: see
2. Take a look at JUG (, which has a JNI 
portion for reading the MAC address
