in reply to How can I find a MAC address from aremote IP ?

I can think of a few ways, but they're kind of out there and won't work most of the time: Why do you need the remote box's MAC address? If you're trying to use MAC address to uniquely identify users or something like that MAC (or any type of network address) is not the way to do it.
