I've set up the apache server on localhost ( I've downloaded PackETH to perform a DoS attack. So PackETH wants MAC-HEADER of the destination and source. And I don't know, where to find them. Where are mac's ?

  • What is the purpose of this experiment? – Limit Apr 29 '18 at 22:49
  • @Limit,to perform Dos attack to my own server , using syn-flood – Elvin Apr 29 '18 at 23:18

You can use the ipconfig /all command in the Windows command prompt and then copy your Physical Address, also known as MAC address. I am not sure if PackETH will work on the same PC though.

More detail here.

  • ,How does it work? Should I find the mac adress of lchalhost ? it is impossile – Elvin Apr 29 '18 at 13:56
  • @Elvin i actually don't think it is possible to have mac of localhost. You probably want to get your local network MAC. Though I don't know whether it will send the packets over the network or realize it is its own mac or whether it will even arrive. It would be best to have two computers/virtual machines. – Peter Harmann Apr 29 '18 at 14:36

If you're using Linux, open terminal and run ifconfig command. You'll find the MAC address under "HWaddr" (Hardware Address) You can find additional details here.

TMHO. I think you better use 2 virtual machines with NAT Network and not attack your local machine with external tools you did not wrote yourself.
