I've just tested copying directly from a windows command prompt as well using the 00-0E-7B-6C-05-E6 notation and that is also accepted. It would still be nice though to be able to type the MAC address in with no formatting and for it to be accepted.
We follow IEEE 802 standards, which defines 3 commonly used formats to print a MAC address in hexadecimal digits:
- Six groups of two hexadecimal digits separated by hyphens (-), like 01-23-45-67-89-ab
- Six groups of two hexadecimal digits separated by colons (:), like 01:23:45:67:89:ab
- Three groups of four hexadecimal digits separated by dots (.), like 0123.4567.89ab
You suggestion is well taken and noted.
I've logged this as a feature enhancement. We probably won't be able to get to it for the 1.0 release, but it's something we will consider after we ship 1.0.
