Query MAC Address
This feature allows you to query a remote computer’s MAC address
There are three ways to query a computer’s MAC address with the VNC Manager:
To open the Query MAC Address form, right click on a Registered Computer’s listing and select Computer Management Tasks -> Query MAC Address command. Alternatively you can use Ctrl+Shift+W as a shortcut to open the form.
The VNC Manager can query a computer’s MAC address using the Check VNC/RDP/SSH Server Status (Ctrl+U) command. The VNC Manager will attempt to retrieve a computer’s MAC address only if the following setting is enabled: Tools -> Options -> Server Status Check -> Resolve MAC address.
Open the Registered Computer’s property sheet and select the General page. Make sure that the "Computer Address" field is not empty. Click on the button to the right next to the MAC address text field shown in the picture below.
