Can I get a MAC address from an IP address?

It is usually not possible for a person to get the MAC address of a computer from its IP address alone. However, computers connected to the same TCP/IP local network can determine each other's MAC addresses. The technology called ARP - Address Resolution Protocol included with TCP/IP makes it possible.

Beside this, can I ping a MAC address on the network?

ANSWER: The answer is no, you can not ping MAC address directly. If you have a network printer connected to your LAN but you can not ping it. The printer may be in your network and you probably are just pinging the wrong ip address for that printer.
