I'm trying to get the ethernet address and from the manuals i understand that i need the ifreq structure for this. So i'm trying to request SIOCGIFMAC with ioctl on a socket of type SOCK_DGRAM.


If you're just targetting FreeBSD >= 5.x platforms, your current approach is reasonable (assuming you can fix whatever the problem is); if you're targetting other platforms such FreeBSD 4, Dfly, OS X, or SysV things like Solaris, try installing the libnet port and invoke libnet_get_hwaddr().
