retrieving MAC address
Posted on 2012-09-19
I would like to know, if I can retrieve MAC address of a PC behind 2 or more routers.
If I understand a router has a MAC to IP address table of each subnet that is directly connected to its interfaces.
usually from a PC, we can ping the remote host, than type GETMAC hostname, to get the MAC address.
I wonder if the 1st router can do the ARP proxy for us to retrieve the MAC address of the remote PC by querying other router. if so, is it by default ?
