MAC Address Lookup API Free

MAC Address Lookup API Free

The MAC (Media Access Control) address is a hexadecimal number that uniquely identifies every connected device on a network. Generally, these numbers are 6 two-digit hexadecimal numbers separated by hyphens or dashes.

Each MAC address is assigned to a specific manufacturer, and it is also known as an Organizationally Unique Identifier (OUI). The first three bytes of the MAC address identifies the vendor. The rest of the MAC address contains information that enables communication between devices on a network.

To get the MAC address of a device, you can use the IP command prompt in a Command Prompt window. This command uses ARP to map a MAC address to an associated IP address.

Another way of finding the MAC address of a device is by using the Network Configuration window in Windows. Once the Network Configuration window opens, click on Wi-Fi, Ethernet or Airport in the left pane and select Advanced from the bottom right.

You can also find a MAC address using the ps command in Linux or Unix. The command displays a list of all the MAC addresses that are present on your computer.

Getting the MAC address of a remote device on a network is not always easy, but with the right tools, it can be done. One of these is MAC Vendor Lookup, which is an excellent tool for determining which MAC address vendor owns a particular MAC address.

MAC Vendor Lookup is an open source project that was launched in 2012. It is available for download on PyPI with a health score of "small". You can use the API to perform vendor lookups from any programming language. It supports multiple requests per second and can handle a large number of MAC addresses.
