Re: [Harfish] Mac address to IP

How can I quickly turn MAC addresses into IP addresses

You can't.

MAC addresses and IP addresses don't represent the same thing, so you can't turn one into the other.

However, if you're on the same LAN you can use ARP to lookup the mapping between the addresses.

Another option, assuming all devices are using DHCP, you could check the dhcp log to find the mapping.
