Hi guys,

I need a feature in my web application. I want to restrict user login on the basis of IP address and MAC address. To achieve this feature i am able to find LAN IP address and i searched the internet to find MAC address code. But i am unable to get any help. Can you guys please show me a way or workaround for the problem.



Thanks in advance
Jagdeep

The MAC address isn't sent with the requests*. It's only available on the client machine. That means that the server can't get to it.

* Well, apart from perhaps DHCP requests, but that's not what we're talking about here.
