Hi,
I tried to get the MAC ID of client machine using php which was impossible . So wanted to know if there is any way to find MAC ID of client machine using javascript ! Is there any way in both IE and firefox .

not that Iím aware of. besides, why should JS read the MAC address at all (any connectivity is provided by the browser)?

thatís because ActiveX goes far deeper into the system than JS ever will.
