Is there a better way to get MAC address from lan adapter.
This one require microsoft client for network to be installed.

Ex1….  

function CoCreateGuid(P:Pointer):Integer;stdcall;external 'ole32.dll';


function GetNicAddr:AnsiString;
var
  T:AnsiString;
  I:Integer;
  result2:String;
begin
  Result:='';
  Result2:='';
  SetLength(T,16);
  if CoCreateGUID(@T[1])=S_OK then begin
  for I:=11 to 15 do Result2:=Result2+IntToHex(Ord(T[I]),2);
  macout:=Result2+IntToHex(Ord(T[16]),2);
  ShowMessage(macout);

Hi Dark King,

first thanx for the point of your prev. Question ;-)


Try this:

{+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
 + Unit.............MACADRESS.PAS
 + Description...... Retrive the Hardware-Adress of an ethernet adapther
 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++}
unit MacAdress;

interface

uses SysUtils,NB30;

type
  TMACAdress  = array[0..5] of byte;
  ENCBError   = class(Exception);

function GetMACAdress(AdapterNum:byte):TMACAdress;
function MACAdressToStr(aMACAdr:TMACAdress):string;
function IsMACAdress(aMACAdr:TMACAdress):boolean;

var
  MacAdressFormat:string;

implementation

ResourceString
  SNCBError='NetBios-Fehler %d';

type TAStat=packed record
              Adapter_Status:TAdapterStatus;
              Name_Buffer:array[0..49] of TNameBuffer;
            end;

function MACAdressToStr(aMACAdr:TMACAdress):string;
begin
  Result:=Format( MacAdressFormat,
                  [aMACAdr[0],
                  aMACAdr[1],
                  aMACAdr[2],
                  aMACAdr[3],
                  aMACAdr[4],
                  aMACAdr[5]]
                );
end;

procedure CheckResult(aReturnCode:char);
  begin
    if Byte(aReturnCode)<>NRC_GOODRET then
      raise ENCBError.Create(Format(SNCBError,[byte(aReturnCode)]));
  end;

function IsMACAdress(aMACAdr:TMACAdress):boolean;
  var i:integer;
  begin
    for i:=0 to 5 do if aMACAdr[i]<>0 then begin Result:=True; exit end;
    Result:=False;
  end;

function GetMACAdress(AdapterNum:byte):TMACAdress;
  var Adapter:TAStat;
      NCB:TNCB;
  begin
    FillChar(NCB,SizeOf(NCB),0);
    NCB.ncb_command:=char(NCBRESET);
    NCB.ncb_lana_num:=char(AdapterNum);
    CheckResult(NetBIOS(@NCB));

    FillChar(NCB,SizeOf(NCB),0);
    NCB.ncb_command:=char(NCBASTAT);
    NCB.ncb_lana_num:=char(AdapterNum);

    StrCopy(NCB.ncb_callname,'*               ');
    NCB.ncb_buffer:=@Adapter;
    NCB.ncb_length:=sizeof(Adapter);
    CheckResult(NetBIOS(@NCB));

    Move(Adapter.Adapter_Status.adapter_address[0],Result[0],SizeOf(Result));
  end;

initialization
  MacAdressFormat:='%2.2x-%2.2x-%2.2x-%2.2x-%2.2x-%2.2x';
end.
