Hello

My application is on a remote server that is accessed by clients remotely using Remote app. I would like to know who is accessing the application. I would like to know the code that I use, using vb.net, to capture the computer name, MAC address and IP computardor that remotely trying to run my application. So I can keep a log of the computers that accessed within my application and other statistics and restrictions.

NOTE: The code I want use will be within the same application

Regards

If you are the programmer of the remote app that is in use, you would need to code the app to get that information and pass it.
Does a user have to login to use the app? You can use that information and the IP from which the requests are made.  The MAC address is within the packet, but not available to you since the immediate MAC address is from one hop away.
