Dear all,
I am planning to write a licensing module which will validate the mac address of a system. For that i want to know can i get the mac address of a system by using applets.

thanks in advance

Java can't access low-level details like this without resorting to native code using the JNI API. And since you can't ship an applet with native libraries, this won't work.
