I am trying to get the IP address or MAC id of a computer on the same lan.  I would like to use .NET calls to do this.  I found the following but it seems to require Admin rights to the computer.  Is there any way to do this without using windows API calls or a High Level Login. I would be alright with the ability to do it with a restricted domain user login though

I found the code here
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/.NET/Q_21469047.html

    Public Shared Function GetMAC(ByVal ComputerName As String)
        Dim MAC As String = ""
        Try
            Dim query As String = "SELECT * FROM Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration"

            Dim searchAddresses As New ManagementObjectSearcher(query)
            Dim ConOpts As New ConnectionOptions()

            ConOpts.Password = "Pswd"
            ConOpts.Username = "Domain\LoginName"
            Dim SearchScope As ManagementScope = New ManagementScope("\\" & ComputerName & "\root\cimv2", ConOpts)
            searchAddresses.Scope = SearchScope

            Dim objColl As ManagementObjectCollection
            objColl = searchAddresses.Get()
            Debug.Print(objColl.ToString)
            For Each Adapter As ManagementObject In objColl
                If Adapter("MacAddress") IsNot Nothing Then
                    MAC = Adapter("MacAddress") '(0)
                End If
            Next
        Catch ex As Exception
            Debug.Print(ex.Message & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & ex.StackTrace)
        End Try

        Return IP
    End Function
