    Yes, GREP is not a valid command on Windoze boxes, although you can get Agrep, the windows port of the venerable grep tool for *nix.

    Hey, Y'all dumbasses realize that the MAC addy is clearly shown in the connection properties dialog...
    Sure, for the NIC installed on the local computer. And you can go to the next box and retrieve the info the same way. It's all fine and dandy if ya wanna do it that way, but heck, why not teach someone the functionality of the CLI. So you've added your two cents to the bit bucket and at the same time told us to put a lid on useful information...

    ...by accessing the functionality of the CLI, you can monitor events...see, someone reading this, might figure that its convenient not having to physically go to a client or whatever to retrieve a ****ing MAC address!!! Some folks are trying to network...
