    Question I run the command "ifconifg | grep ether" in Kali and got 3 diff MAC's

    Hello,
    I was trying to see my MAC address and when i run the command I got 3 different MAC's addresses.

    $ ifconfig | grep ether
    ether -MAC- txqueuelen 0 (Ethernet)
    ether -MAC- txqueuelen 1000 (Ethernet)
    ether -MAC- txqueuelen 1000 (Ethernet)


    Why is this happening?
    I delete de MAC int copy/paste for sec.

    Thanks and excuse my english.

    You likely have multiple virtual ethernet adapters/IPs configured for the same interface. If you just try "ifconfig" you may be able to tell which one you're actually using by the number of TX/RX packets, IP address, etc.

    I hope this helps
