Description

MACAddressView is a MAC address lookup tool that allows you to easily find the company details (company name, address, and country) according to the MAC address of a product.
MACAddressView also allows you to find MAC address records according to the company name, company address, or country name. After finding the desired MAC address records, you can save them into text/xml/HTML/csv file or copy them to the clipboard and paste them into Excel or other applications.

MACAddressView doesn't send any request to a remote server, it simply uses the internal MAC addresses database stored inside the .exe file.

Using MACAddressView

MACAddressView doesn't require any installation process or additional DLL files. In order to start using it, simply copy the executable file (MACAddressView.exe) to any folder you like, and run it.

After running MACAddressView, the 'Find MAC Address Records' will appear. By default, the 'Find By' option is set to 'MAC Address'. In this mode, you can type one or more MAC Addresses, separated by space, comma, or Enter key. You can try a full MAC address (like 01-02-03-04-05-06) or only the first 3 bytes of the address (like 01-02-03). After typing all MAC Addresses you need, click the 'Ok' button to view the details of all MAC records that you asked.

You can also locate a MAC record according to the company name, company address, or country name. You can look in the examples below to find out what you can do with these options.

Examples of what you can find with MACAddressView

  • All MAC addresses range used by companies in Germany and Austria: Select 'Country Name' in 'Find By' combo-box, and then in the large text-box, type Germany and Austria, in 2 separated lines.
  • All MAC addresses range used by Intel: Select 'Company Name' in 'Find By' combo-box, and then in the large text-box, type Intel.
  • MAC addresses range used by companies in New York: Select 'Company Address' in 'Find By' combo-box, and then in the large text-box, type 'New York'.

Using External File

Although MACAddressView has an internal database inside the .exe file, you can still use the latest MAC address lookup database available from http://standards.ieee.org/develop/regauth/oui/oui.txt. After downloading it, simply put the 'oui.txt' filename in the same folder of MACAddressView.exe, and run it.
When MACAddressView loads the data from external file, 'External File' phrase will appear in the window title.

Command-Line Options

/find <Find Type> <Find Text> specifies the MAC addresses that you want to find. The <Find Type> should be: 1 for searching by MAC addresses, 2 for for searching by company name, 3 for for searching by company address, or 3 for for searching by country name.
/stext <Filename> Save the list of MAC Addresses into a regular text file.
/stab <Filename> Save the list of MAC Addresses into a tab-delimited text file.
/scomma <Filename> Save the list of MAC Addresses into a comma-delimited text file (csv).
/stabular <Filename> Save the list of MAC Addresses into a tabular text file.
/shtml <Filename> Save the list of MAC Addresses into HTML file (Horizontal).
/sverhtml <Filename> Save the list of MAC Addresses into HTML file (Vertical).
/sxml <Filename> Save the list of MAC Addresses into XML file.
/sort <column> This command-line option can be used with other save options for sorting by the desired column. If you don't specify this option, the list is sorted according to the last sort that you made from the user interface. The <column> parameter can specify the column index (0 for the first column, 1 for the second column, and so on) or the name of the column, like "MAC Addresses" and "Company". You can specify the '~' prefix character (e.g: "~Address") if you want to sort in descending order. You can put multiple /sort in the command-line if you want to sort by multiple columns.

/nosort When you specify this command-line option, the list will be saved without any sorting.

Examples:
MACAddressView.exe /find 1 "00-11-F5 00-21-4E 00-80-4C 00-C0-D6"
MACAddressView.exe /find 4 "italy"
MACAddressView.exe /find 4 "germany" /shtml c:\temp\maclist.html
