How to determine your computer's hostname and hardware (MAC) address

Availability: One of the best sources of Mac server hardware is an old Mac you already own. My first two Mac servers were both hand-me-down Power Macs. Once I got a fresher model, the old one went.

In a network environment, nodes (network enabled equipment or objects on the network) have unique identifiers. The MAC address is the physical address of a network interface. It is unique at the hardware manufacturer level and SCS Computing Facilities utilizes these hardware addresses to uniquely allow access to our network.

Physical Address: Refers to the physical address of the Ethernet connection to your computer or server. This may also be referred to as your MAC (Media Access Control) Address, Host ID or Server ID. It is twelve characters long and is a combination of numbers (0–9) and letters (A–F, a–f). Your physical address is often presented in this format: XX-XX-XX-XX-XX-XX.
