	In some circumstances:

	- if you have administrative control over the different network
	to which the remote machine is connected;

	- if the the remote machine is running a protocol that would
	include the MAC address in the packet data (I'm aware of
	protocols - IPSec, NBNS - that include the remote IP in some
	way, but none that include the MAC).

	Both circumstances are unlikely.
