Re: Not getting MAC-Address

log onto the printer server or a client that can print to the printer and ping it. then check the arp table.

arp -a or /proc/net/arp

Re: Not getting MAC-Address

You mentioned f0/6 in the heading and the output display is looking for f0/4.

Which port is it ?

Get the printer's mac address from an arp cache or a config page then issue the command

sh mac-address-table | include xxxx.xxxx.xxxx

from where you want me try,from core switch or in this particular switch, if core switch I tried, but Iam not able to find.

if its edge switch, it shows only management vlan ip's

Re: Not getting MAC-Address

do you have a dns name for the printer? if people can print to it there has to be some sort of dns name somewhere or IP addresses entered into the print servers port somewhere. i would try to find that then ping that printer and check arp. also check the docs on the printer and print a test page, that will give you the ip address of the machine and print the config.
