try this: nbtstat -A ipaddress
The last line display as a result should read MAC address: xx-xx-xx-xx. It's that simple

Thank you for the information guys. I have a slight concern --> when I try to find out the IP address of the various computers in my home that are connected both wirelessly and through a wired connection, I get the same IP address for all of them. I am assuming this is because they are all connected to the same router. However, if I try to find the MAC of a remote computer with just an IP address, won't the same thing happen --> won't just the MAC of the router show up?

Another question... if a computer that is connected to a WiFi network logs on to thescripts.com or any other server, what information is their server logging? IP Address and MAC? Just IP Address? Can MAC easily be derived? If so, is that the MAC of the local router it is being accessed with or the actual end PC client?

Any input would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Everyone...

I need help.

Does anyone here knows how can I get the wired mac address of a remote computer in linux even if the remote computer is using the wireless connection?

I think this command -> arp -a <ipaddress> is returning only the mac address of the active connection (either wired or wireless).

What i need to get is the mac address of the wired connection regardless if the remote computer is connected in the network using wired or wireless...

Your help is very much appreciated. Thanks in advance...

I am trying to determine the ip address of a remote computer accessing my webpage. I do this to determine if the user if logged on elsewhere. If so, the server will reject actions from the previous location and log the user in from the new location. However, since all the computers are behind the gateway, I use $_SERVER; and only get the static ip of the gateway. Is there anyway to find out which specific computer is trying to login? If...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
