    Mac Address of Remote Machines

    Is there any way to find and reset the Mac Address of remote PCs connected? If yes how?

    I guess you'd need to run something like an ActiveX control on the remote machine. Even so, I'm not sure that the Mac address can be changed. I'm no expert but I thought that the Mac address was a unique hardware value so it might not be possible to change it.
