You can use request server variables (in ASP, it is "Request.ServerVariables["REMOTE_ADDR"]") to get the IP of the remote machine, but unless it's on a local network where you can use ARP to look up the MAC, you're not going to get a MAC without running some kind of client-side app (java or something).

If this is on a publicly accessible web page on the internet, you will only get the public IP address.  If the client is on a LAN that connects to the internet thru a router and/or modem, you will not see their LAN IP address.  And if there is more than one computer on that LAN, all the computers will appear to have the same IP address which will be the public IP address.  In that case it will Not be a unique identifier.

clients are on the same subnet as the webserver. I put that exactly as you put it but it shows on the page as well as in the code. Not working. What am I missing.

Did you name the file "*.asp" so the ASP interpreter will run it?

While I'm sure that it is available, you can run this short program that displays all of the available server variables.  Note the use of 'Response.Write' to get them to show on the page.
<%@ LANGUAGE = VBScript %>
<%  Option Explicit		%>

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
 "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

<html>
<head>
<title>ASP Server Variables</title>
</head>
<body>
<h1>ASP Server Variables</h1>
<%
Dim item

For each item in Request.ServerVariables
	Response.Write "<b>" & item & "</b>: " _
	& Request.ServerVariables(item) _
	& "<br>" & vbCrLf
Next

	Response.Write "<b>PATH_INFO</b>: " _
	& Request.ServerVariables("PATH_INFO") _
	& "<br>" & vbCrLf

%>

</body>
</html>
