How to find the MAC address of a remote computer

GetMAC provides a quick method for obtaining the MAC layer address and binding order for a computer running Windows 2000, locally or across a network.

A tool called GetMAC returns the media access control (MAC) address and list of network protocols associated with...

each address for all network cards in each computer, either locally or across a network. This can be useful when you want to enter the address into a sniffer, or if you need to know what protocols are currently in use on a computer.

To find the MAC address for a remote computer, type this at the command prompt: GetMAC /S  /U  /V

Please make sure that you have admin permission on the remote computer otherwise GetMAC fails.

For more options on GetMAC, type GETMAC /? at the command prompt.
