I can retrieve a MAC address in dos by typing "getmac" followed by the machine name?  Is there an windows API or MFC equivalent that will retrieve the machine address?

I am not looking for the machine title.  I am looking for the MAC address, given the machine title.  In MSDOS, the MAC is retrieved with the getmac command followed by the machine title.  How is this done in C++/MFC?

You might check out the ARP cache.  You would access it using SMTP protocols.

Let me elaborate.  I am looking for a function which will retrieve a unique identification number for a specific computer.  I want to use the unique identification number to create an application which will execute only on my machine.  Is there a simple API or MFC call which will retrieve such information?

The effort is worth 100 points.  However, I don't have the netbios header file, so I can't compile it.  I'll give you 100 points now.  I'll give you another 100 if we can get it to work properly.  For now, we simply need "netbios.h".
