Finding MAC address from LAN

March 8, 2006 at 06:28:46
Specs: WinXP, 256MB
I need to find some MAC address in my LAN. I am not able to ping a particular IP which I know is alive and exist. I have tried the DOS command "getmac /s <ipaddress> "
but its not showing me mac address. This is possibly due to some restrictions on the network. I have also tried the software GetCC MacAddress but it was of no help
Can anyone plz help me on this issue.....

if you know the IP address, you can find MAC by using nbtstat command:

nbtstat -A <ip address>

MUST BE uppercase A with IP address.

type nbtstat /? for help

Is the XP firewall enabled on the client machine? If so, it will not answer ping.
