HostID in OSX

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?

Ahh ok. Open your Apple System Profiler and look in the Network section. Itll be listed under "Address:"

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?
