I'm trying to find my host ID in OSX.  I tried lmhostid in the terminal but it says command not found.  Is there another way I can find my host ID?

Host ID? You mean your netword interface ID or your public IP address or your ISPs IP?

No offense.  I know you're a wiz - maybe a "C" was a little harsh.  I knew that Apple System Profiler would give me my Ethernet ID - but I wasn't sure if my HostID was the same thing.  What I ended up doing was installing FlexLM just to be sure that the hostID and the Ethernet Address was in fact the same thing - and it is.  Anyways I usually give you "A's" - but I guess I was feeling jerky?   BTW what do you do for a living?
