    It is possible to get the MAC address of a machine as long as it is in the same network of the server PHP is running.

    What kind of OS is on the server PHP is running? Is it Windows or Linux?

      Client MAC address can be only available if they are on teh same ethernet segment.In such case on linux you can do echo system('arp -n') or echo system('arp -a') on windows.

      This class should work for you regardless of the operating system you are running on your server, as it supports either Linux, FreeBSD and Windows servers, as long as the user machine is on the same local network of course.
