You can obtain the local MAC address in other ways.

Not the local mac. take the code below as example


$Broadcast=UdpOpen("", 69, 3)
if @Error <> 0 Then

UDPSend ($Broadcast,"data")

While 1

$data = UDPRecv($Broadcast, 200, 3)
If $data <> "" Then

; MsgBox(0, "UDP DATA", $data[0], 1)

FileWrite( $data[0], $data[1], $data[2])


Func OnAutoItExit()



In this case your broadcasting and getting response from clients. If you want to obtain the MAC of clients which is clearly in all the incoming traffic you can not via autoit. If you just set a flag for the incomming connection to have the mac of connected client it would be very helpfull for building server with clients.

The MAC address does not exist on the same layer as the UDP socket. What you want is ARP. We will not be building ARP into AutoIt nor will we add extensions to other protocols to have limited ARP capabilities.
