Reading between what few words there are, I'm thinking he's looking to find a
machine based on just the MAC address.  
 
Which would still bring up the question of Why?  For most purposes you will
still need to translate the MAC to IP or NETx name to be able to access it,
unless it's on the local subnet.  And even if it is, as someone else said,
it's not very friendly at that level.

My first question would be why?  What are you trying to accomplish?  If you
don't want to use TCP/IP you could go with the IPX/SPX network stack, now
your going with a NETx name, it would work I suppose.  IPX is a Netware
stack, but Windows does talk it.
