How to get the TRVR MAC address

The easiest way to get the MAC address of your TRVR is to look it up from the ARP cache on another machine. Here is how:

1. On a Windows machine open a command line window.
2. Ping the TRVR IP address. For example, if the IP address of your Total Recall is

C:\\> ping
Pinging with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from bytes=32 time<10ms TTL=64
Reply from bytes=32 time<10ms TTL=64

Ping statistics for
    Packets: Sent = 2, Received = 2, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
    Minimum = 0ms, Maximum =  0ms, Average =  0ms

3. Now lookup the MAC address in the APR cache of the machine. For example:

C:\\> arp -a

Interface: on Interface 0x1000004
  Internet Address      Physical Address      Type         00-18-4d-e9-cc-7c     dynamic


The MAC address of your TRVR is the “Physical Address” reported by the `arp` command.

You can do the same thing from a Linux machine. See the manual pages for `arp` for the correct command line parameters.
