MAC Address and NT RAS Issues

Greetings,

We are running a Novell NetWare 4.11 server. Without physically taking out the NIC to look at the MAC address, is there a software method to find out this MAC address from

1) Novell Client 32 Win95 workstation

2) A DOS NetWare Requestor Client

Nwadmn95 has an option to restrict MAC address for a particular login-id by using the network address restrictions option. Must I supply both the network address (segment address ?) and the node address (MAC address ?) for this to work ?

I have posted the "Not Able To Map To RAS Server" in NT General forum. any Novell experts here able to give suggestions on how to resolve that question ?

TIA
Daniel

How to get MAC adress:

1) GETMAC util - Returns the MAC (hardware) address of the NIC in the workstation it is run on DOS (can be found on http://www.novellshareware.com in "Files" page)

2) You also use login script command to see MAC adress
______
write " Workstation MAC adress:  %P_STATION"
pause
----------
To aply login restriction you must supply both network (segment) adress and MAC adress,
but note that all F mean "all valid", so you may enter FFFFFFFF in network field to allow access from any segment

The GETMAC util works as it should when runs from Win95 DOS prompt. And the http://www.novellshareware.com website is a gem of NetWare utilities. Thanks.
