MAC address

As far as I am aware MAC addresses are only, or at least predominantly, used
in the ARP protocol, which is used in LAN situation. ARP packets will not be
routed over the internet. Therefore I would say that finding the MAC address
of a remote host over the internet would be very difficult.

Of course, I may be wrong here :)
