    iptables - matching MAC


    Iptables manual page says:
    ---------------
    mac
    [!] --mac-source address
    Match source MAC address. It must be of the form XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX. Note that this only makes sense for packets coming from an Ethernet device and entering the PREROUTING, FOR‐
    WARD or INPUT chains.
    ---------------
    Why doesn't it make sense for packets coming from a wireless interface?
