RE: How to find MAC address

There isn't an nmap option to gather a MAC remotely, but your original
response said:

There is none. As soon as a packet passes a 
router the only MAC you're gonna see is the 
one of the router. ARP-packets simply cannot 
be routed.

Which is misleading; ARP isn't the only mechanism.  There are ways of
gathering the MAC from higher level protocols, and not just proprietary
extensions either;  MS NetBIOS name service, SNMP, blah blah blah...
