Is it possible to determine client mac-address in remote desktop services session? Clients connect over internet. How can I get it? Server: Win Server 2008 R2 or 2012

It's not possible. The MAC address is replaced at every router in between the client and the server. –  joeqwerty Nov 6 '13 at 14:57

No, you cannot get the MAC address of a Remote Desktop client, unless the server and the client are on the same subnet.
