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 :)

If it is a windows box and port 137 UDP is open (I know a lot of 'if's), you can get the MAC from the nbtstat packet.
