How do I find my machine ID?
Posted by Amy Wong on 29 September 2015 02:10 PM

Your machine ID is your Ethernet ID/MAC address: 6 pairs of numbers and letters A-F. You may see the pairs un-separated (d312a930bc7f), separated by colons (d3:12:a9:30:bc:7f) or separated by dashes (d3-12-a9-30-bc-7f).

  • On Windows, go to the Start menu, then in the search box type "cmd" and hit Enter.
    • In the cmd window, type "ipconfig /all". 
    • Find the line that reads "Physical Address".
  • On Mac, go to System Preferences > Network and select your active network interface (e.g., Ethernet) from the list on the left. Click on 'Advanced...', then on 'Hardware'.
    • The machine ID is listed under "MAC Address".
