Determining the Linux MAC Address

One of the required fields when requesting an APPX for Linux license key is the "serial number" of your Linux system. APPX uses the MAC Address of the ethernet adapter configured at eth0 as a "serial number". You must enter this serial number when requesting a license key. If you don't know the MAC Address, it is easily obtained. Simply enter the following command from the Linux command line:

# /sbin/ifconfig -a

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:50:56:A6:4F:CB

...

...

The ifconfig command will return several lines of information for each network adapter that is installed on your Linux system. APPX uses the MAC Address (HWaddr) of the ethernet adapter that is installed at eth0 as the serial number for the license key. In the example above, the serial number you should specify when requesting a license key is:

00:50:56:A6:4F:CB
