To my knowledge this is not possible due to the way TCP/IP works. The operating system does not share MAC information with the software. MAC information may also be changed or spoofed easier than IP addresses.

Not to mention, due to the way the Ethernet protocol works, the Ethernet addresses (or MAC addresses as some call them) are not transmitted beyond the physical network to which they are connected. That means the ONLY Ethernet address available to the OS is the Ethernet address of the LAST router/bridge the TCP connection went through, and NOT the Ethernet address of the actual computer the client is running on. The ONLY way to get the client computers actual Ethernet address is if software ON that computer transmits it to you.
