If you don't want the lasthop MAC address then what do you want?

I want the physical mac address of client (pc mac address), cuz i noticed that [LINK::lasthop] retrieve the mac address of router not pc mac address.

that is not possible for a regular TCP / UDP request. the client MAC address is only known locally at the client (and its layer 2 network).

 

with a BIG-IP Edge client i do believe you can get it. but on regular TCP / UDP no way.

Noted, Thank you
