Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am using the edu net in my university. However it often occures that someone always steal the Mac adress of my computer to cheat the server so that he can use the network service without paying for it. Most of the time his IP address was disguised as 0.0.0.0. The problem is how I can trace his real IP adress and find him and let him pay the price?!

Thanks a lot!

This site is for questions relating to Ubuntu somehow - maybe security.stackexchange.com would be a better place? –  neon_overload Mar 26 '13 at 4:48
    
0.0.0.0 is not a valid ip. Your school doesn't have a user id/password system also? –  Scott Goodgame Mar 26 '13 at 5:20
    
Of course we have a user id/passwd system. but I can't figure out how that failed in prevent him from stealing the Mac address –  Nickirk Mar 26 '13 at 6:14

Contact the uni system admin and see if they can help, or alternatively visit your uni computer science club and ask around.

The problem can be solved for long if the uni system admin can help. I hope that computer science club may help. –  Nickirk Mar 26 '13 at 6:18
