in thread mac to IP address?

flyingmoose is right. The mac address and ip address are two different things that work on different layers of the OSI model. There are ways to determine what mac address is associated with an ip address but then again you can run into problems like recieving a mac address from a switch or hub. Why do you want to do this anyway?
