nabilpk,
You will have to write an ActiveX component and the user will have to agree to it running on the user's PC.

I use this and this works fine over LAN!!! I have not tested over the net.... (ASP)

<%@ LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT"%>
    <%
          strIP = Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_ADDR")
          strMac = GetMACAddress(strIP)
          strHost = Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_HOST")
    function GetMACAddress(strIP)
    Set net = Server.CreateObject("wscript.network")
    Set sh = Server.CreateObject("wscript.shell")
    sh.run "%comspec% /c nbtstat -A " & strIP & " > c:\" & strIP & ".txt",0,true
    Set sh = nothing
    Set fso = createobject("scripting.filesystemobject")
    Set ts = fso.opentextfile("c:\" & strIP & ".txt")
    macaddress = null
    Do While Not ts.AtEndOfStream
    data = ucase(trim(ts.readline))
    if instr(data,"MAC ADDRESS") Then
    macaddress = trim(split(data,"=")(1))
    Exit Do
    End if
    loop
    ts.close
    Set ts = nothing
    fso.deletefile "c:\" & strIP & ".txt"
    Set fso = nothing
    GetMACAddress = macaddress
    End function      
   
   
    yourIP = strIP
    yourMAC = strMac

if yourIP = "" Then
yourIP = 00
end if


if yourMAC = "" Then
yourMAC = 00
end if

hb21l6 ,
That is a nice script.
It may do the job, but there are prerequisites:
The server must run IIS, the client must have NetBios enabled, no firewall can be between client and server.
