    Hello everyone

    I've just go the voyager 2 device and I'm trying to get to the web interface. IPs in our network are mac-based. devices do not get an IP unless DHCP knows their MAC address. How can I get the MAC address of the tinypilot?

    Thank you

        Hello @goudeuk3X - Welcome to the Forum and thank you for posting your question here.

        The recommendations would be for you to do this first:

        • Connect to the TinyPilot on a less restricted network, enable SSH and then ssh in, then you can run ifconfig eth0 and that will give you the MAC address you are looking for (look at the line that begins with ether).

        After this you should be able to connect your TinyPilot into your locked-down network.
