Syntax: Get ( SystemNICAddress )
Data type returned: Text
Produces a return-delimited list containing the hardware addresses of all the NIC (Network Interface Controller) cards connected to the machine.
In Windows, you can find this address by typing ipconfig /All from a command prompt. On Mac OS X, you can find the NIC address by using the Apple System Profiler utility.
If the user's machine has multiple NIC cards, Get (SystemNICAddress) generates a return-delimited list of all their addresses. You might, for instance, have both a built-in Ethernet card and a wireless networking card installed in a laptop. Or, a server might have multiple built-in Ethernet ports. In both of these cases, Get (SystemNICAddress) returns the addresses of both devices.
