Not much to offer except curiosity and frustration on my own efforts. On your HP-UX interface queries, does it render "raw" (no colon or dash delimiter) 12 characters, with leading zeroes, or does it provide you with the delimiter. I'm using "lanscan -a" on the HP-UX interfaces, getting my 12 char MAC address, trying to insert colons every two characters, then stripping the lead zeroes. That's my fallback position after I baked my brain on making the DEC OSF1 "netstat -i | grep '<Link>' |egrep -v "s10|lo0|ppp0"|awk '{print $1}' | sort -u`" system call for-loop kludge work, which at least renders multi-line output of valid, live interfaces. If I can get either to work, I'll die a happy I thrust my head through the display :-) ...---... SOS !!! -raddude

    In the end I decided that I didn't need the :s - and so I just take whatever format the OS (HP-UX, AIX, or OSF/1) reports and use that. The justification being that if you need to get involved with MAC addresses then you can probably cope with the different formats!
