Last Updated on September 26, 2021 by Admin 3

When using GAiA, it might be necessary to temporarily change the MAC address of the interface eth 0 to 00:0C:29:12:34:56. After restarting the network the old MAC address should be active. How do you configure this change?

  • As expert user, issue these commands:
    # IP link set eth0 down
    
    # IP link set eth0 addr 00:0C:29:12:34:56
    
    # IP link set eth0 up
  • Edit the file /etc/sysconfig/netconf.C and put the new MAC address in the field
    (conf
    
    :(conns
    
    :(conn
    
    :hwaddr (“00:0C:29:12:34:56”)
  • As expert user, issue the command:
    # IP link set eth0 addr 00:0C:29:12:34:56
  • Open the WebUI, select Network > Connections > eth0. Place the new MAC address in the field Physical Address, and press Apply to save the settings.
