Hi Simon, sorry for my late response.

I've saw the link suggested, thanks. I will try to use.
if I'm not wrong the MAC address is the Media Access Control address of the network hardware interface installed on a PC or a Mac computer. and that data is a unique identifier number, is it so?

ciao franco

Hi Franco,
Yes it should be unique for each machine.
