I doubt it. Other people's MAC addresses are none of your business.

He did not say somebody elses MAC address.

    Not directly, no. But in at least two of the forty-leven
threads he started on this one topic he asked how to do it with
an "aglet." He probably wasn't referring to the thing at the
end of a shoelace, but to a framework and toolkit (possibly
obsolete?) for writing mobile applications that wander all over
the Internet from device to device to device.

    ... which makes "somebody else's MAC address" a reasonable
supposition, even if unproven.

Well - when I showed code that got IP and MAC of the local
system he asked for code doing the same on 1.4.

It is not obvious to me why an aglet should have more use
of a remote MAC than a local MAC. But given that I don't
know the framework, then that does not tell much.
