is this a mac address on your own LAN? If you are running a managed switch you should have some way of showing the routing tables on the switch.

Maybe if you had a packet dump with that mac making a connection to your machine. I would imagine you could find the info you need in the packet headers.

hmm.. what I am wanting is to be able to keep up with dynamic ip's, I was thinking the best way would be knowning the mac address... Im guessing this isn't possible?

Just start loading a trojan on all those hacked boxes you have to notify you daily of their current IP address

I use a little free utility from www.radmin.com called Advanced IP scanner, It windows based and you tell it your IP range and it will come back with all the live IP addresses, the computer names, an the mac addresses. I think thats what you are wanting.

Edit: didnt see across the internet, so this wont work

Thanks for the program... I guess what im looking for cant be done..., I'll explain what i was trying to do.. maybe if you guys know a better way... you can let me in.

I have three guys in Ohio, Cali, and one in dallas... That need some remote computer administration done and I could be called at anytime by one of them when they need help, So i have been remoting into their machines... Well they are not very computer literate so i have a hard time getting them to go into their router... and getting me an ip address, I was thinking if I could just get the mac address of the modem i could get an IP from it that way. Since the MAC never changes.. ohh well.. no big deal, if any of you know a better way let me. They all have DSL... so just having a host name wont work as it changes with the ip.

myclientsipaddressis.com could mean 192.168.1.2

No. You cant tell what someones ip address is from someone coming from across the internet. MAC Address arent carried in the tcp header once it passes to the next hop.

Something like this?

IPnote provides an email notification system that can inform specified recipients of internal and external IP address changes. It monitors the IP addresses of the current machine and sends an email notification as soon as changes are detected. The email notification includes the new IP addresses.

I ended up using a webiste that would tell them their external ip address... (i forget the website now) then I setup a static ip address that was DMZ'd so that when they called me, I had them change their ip address to the DMZ'd address (the DMZ'd ip was only used when they called me), when I was done fixing them.. I reset it back to dhcp and had them reboot.
