Looking at output provided by people on the list, I found that on my
systems, I don't get the ethernet address.

I get the following output on my systems (I changed the names and

xxxxx:/home/fido-> ifconfig -a
lo0: flags=849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 8232
        inet netmask ff000000
        inet netmask ffffff00 broadcast

I finally used arp -a to find the address, after pinging the target

Thanks a lot and best regards.
