Subject Re: logging MAC address of the client machines
Date Tue, 26 Feb 2002 14:22:31 GMT
One thing that i don't remember the orginal poster asking, is he just
worried about IE/windows traffic or does he want the mac of all clients.  If
he can restrict to IE/Win, an activeX control might be able to get the info
with very little hassle.  Java would be the only cross-platform solution I
can think of, but text mode browsers don't have java interpreters embeded.
