In this particular case, the getmac53 command does not retrieve a large, fast-foot restaurant burger for you nor does it access an Apple computer. The getmac command refers to the MAC or Media Access Control address of network computers. MAC addresses are also known as physical addresses and are associated with the Network Interface Card or NIC installed in a computer.
Typing in getmac command with no switches will result in the list of MAC addresses and Transport Names listed in the local computer. An example of this output is shown in Figure 280.
Typing getmac /? results in the usual help page output.
The getmac command can access the same information on the local computer or on a remote network host.
