Is it possible to pull an identifier from the web server itself, like its MAC Address?
If so, how?

    Accepted Solution

    Simple answer is No, Just like you can't see the MAC address of a server. Typically only the first hop (router) can see your MAC address, and it does not pass that along with the TCP packet and MAC addresses are not transmitted to the end user.
