This class is meant to retrieve the MAC address associated to a network card of a computer in the same local network.
This class works only under Windows 2000 or later and can retrieve the MAC address of either the network card associated to the IP address of the current Web server or the client accessing to it.
The class does not return anything if the server is running on the loopback addreess (localhost or 127.0.0.x) as it is not associated to a network card.

|Network card MAC addresses are often used as unique values specific to the machine onto which a given application is installed. These unique values are used for instance to bind per machine software licenses using the MAC address as key to grant access to protected code only on that machine.
Currently there is no solution based on a built-in PHP module that lets you retrieve the MAC address of a given network card.
This class provides a solution that resorts to an external Windows utility. Despite it is Windows specific, it provides a way that works under Windows platforms and be useful for the intended purposes.
