  1. Finding the MAC address in BeOS and browse local network

    I am curious as to where the MAC address is located in BeOS 5.
    I would like to get that box up on the net. Thanks all.

    There's GetMACAddress, or you can enable debugging during boot (hit space when booting and select it) and check from /var/log/syslog, or use ifconfig if your system has that command. Maybe netstat displays it, too?

    I was also wondering how to browse the local network. I have played with it a little, but to no avail.

    You can use CIFS-Mounter to mount the partitions to your desktop. Samba is on its way, too..
