1. From the command prompt, change directories to the tdclient directory(where the tdclient executable resides)
2. Run the genkeys application with the option “path=” on the end and hit return. The path= will be the location where the tdclient application resides(the current directory). (example: $ genkeys path=install\path\tdclient\)
3. You will be prompted to enter a specified number of random characters.
4. The certificate request (cert.req) has been successfully generated.
How to Find Your MAC Address
Type ipconfig /all at the command prompt and press Enter.
The 12 digit Physical Address is the same as the MAC Address.
Note: If you have multiple “Physical Addresses”. Make sure you retrieve the one for the “Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection”
UNIX/LINUX – Solaris/SunOS: On Solaris and SunOS systems, the ethernet device is typically called le0 or ie0. In order to find the MAC address of the ethernet device, you must first become root, through the use of su. Then, type ifconfig -a and look up the relevant info. For example:
# ifconfig -a le0: flags=863<UP,BROADCAST,NOTRAILERS,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 inet 18.104.22.168 netmask fffff800 broadcast 22.214.171.124 ether 8:0:20:10:d2:ae
Note: Solaris and SunOS strip off the leading 0 commonly included in the MAC address. In the case of this machine, the MAC address is 08:00:20:10:d2:ae
UNIX/LINUX – HPUX:
On HP systems, the ethernet device is typically called lan0. Type lanscan and look up the relevant info. For example:
$ lanscan Hardware Station Dev Hardware Net-Interface NM Encapsulation Mjr Path Address lu State NameUnit State ID Methods Num 2.0.2 0x08000935C99D 0 UP lan0 UP 4 ETHER 52
Note: HP systems remove the :’s from the MAC address. In the case of this system, the MAC address is 08:00:09:35:C9:9D.
UNIX/LINUX – AIX/RedHat and SuSE:
On Linux systems, the ethernet device is typically called eth0. In order to find the MAC address of the ethernet device, you must first become root, through the use of su. Then, type ifconfig -a and look up the relevant info. For example:
# ifconfig -a eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:60:08:C4:99:AA inet addr:126.96.36.199 Bcast:188.8.131.52 Mask:255.255.248.0 UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:15647904 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 TX packets:69559 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 Interrupt:10 Base address:0x300
The MAC address is the HWaddr listed on the first line. In the case of this machine, it is 00:60:08:C4:99:AA.
Run WRKLIND command.
You will see about 5 objects displayed.
For objects starting with ETH, issue the 5-Display command.
