    Question need network card's adress

    Hy all.

    I have a huge problem. I need the NIC's adress and I don't know where to find it.
    I am using Windows XP Profesional and Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0.
    I've looked everywere, books, articles, web pages, and I can't find it.
    I need to make a program in wich I need to send and recieve packages via the network card. And the most chalanging part is that I can't use any network protocols.

    Can anybody help me out?
    Thank you.

    You'd get more help in the Windows forum.

    Though you get address from IVT, it is hard for you as you said you cannot use protocols. Then you have to define your own protocol of communication. I think own protocol is very hard to do and compatability wise i am in doubt.
