How to get MAC address on Lexmark printer

I need the mac address for the network card on a Lexmark T632 printer in order to reserve the IP address and MAC address in the DHCP server. When I print the config page, there's nothing about the MAC address, but there are two addresses that look like MAC's called UAA MSB and UAA Canonical.  Which one do I use?
this is part of a complicated VPN config, so I can't just use a fixed IP address.

Thanks

maharlika,

You want to use the Canonical number.  The other number is most likely for Token Ring networks.  Lexmark gives the canonical number for ethernet networks.

The problem with embedding links in an answer is they may eventually go away, as is the case with the accepted answer for this question..

The actual answer to the question was the comment before the one accepted.  The links were provided as support.  Although it is true they may change and then not be good I like providing them as support and for more information.  The way to make it so the answer here is still useful is to also provide a complete solution in my own words.  It is unfortunate the links changed but I am glad to see my method for answering made this still helpful.

For updates on the supporting documents you can look at http://support.lexmark.com/index?page=content&id=FA69&actp=search&viewlocale=en_US&segment=SUPPORT&productCode=&locale=EN&userlocale=EN_US&searchid=1348275240606 .  Enough time has past that I can't say for sure it is the same as one of the two above but it provides the support.  A quick search of the Lexmark KB yielded that and even more results if you are interested.  I used the keywords "UAA MSB Canonical" (no quotes).
