MAC address on red0 - How to clear it

Post by renatohtpc » November 6th, 2019, 3:32 pm

I am running IPFire 2.23 (x86_64) - Core Update 136.

At some point, I entered a value for the new MAC address......

I think to remember that it was done so that I could swap out the red card without having to release the lease of my internet provider (i.e. FIOS).

Now, I am trying to clear out that field, but apparently I cannot since the field cannot be blank.

Any suggestions?

To remove the assigned mac Addresses click on "Delete" nearby the "Save" button and after this shutdown and restart the system. (Many nics need only a reboot to use the hardware mac address from the board again but some need a power cycle.)
