requested by Faculty for research

Don't know how to find this information?

Open a command line in Windows and type:

ipconfig /all

This will return information about the computer you are using. The Hostname and Mac Address (aka: physical address) can be found here. That's it! Root will let you know as soon as they have assigned you an IP.
