Sean,

I just received a SliMP3 (from the Australian Distributor) yesterday. It
reports its MAC as 00:04:20:04:1A:50 while my DHCP service reckons it is
00:01:9F:00:5A:D6

I recall I had trouble getting the DHCP server to force an IP address on the
1st SliMP3 I purchased months ago. I didn't notice at the time that the MAC
was utterly different. I ended up setting all the settings manually within
the SliMP3 with the remote.

The slimserver reports the same MAC as the SliMP3s.

I do not see this happening with any of the Linux or Win boxen on my home
LAN (all connected with a Netgear switch), the MAC they report agrees with
that my server detects.

Strange......

David

What MACs are you seeing? All of our addresses should start with
00:04:20

And no, we're not stoners, that's just the number we got.

What does 'arp -a' give you?

Sounds like you have some stale data. The other alternative is to give your SliMP3 a "fixed" address.

host slimp3 {
hardware ethernet 00:04:20:00:00:00;
fixed-address 192.168.1.X
}

If you are running ISC's dhcp server.
