Passing client machine id/token field to server side web app RRS feed

  • Question

  • User1584574419 posted

    hi,

    I have an web app in the cloud but my client PCs/browsers are on a separate domain. My problem is that although I can have a user logon and get the user

    identity, I also need to know the local machine/PC identity or some kind of unique 'token' that identifies the machine.

    Question: how can I send this unique token to the server side on the initial login page?

    Can I get the client  PC MAC address at the server side ? Or some kind of unique client PC environment variable which I can set on the PC?

    Any thoughts?

    The MAC address is not passed outside the local network.

    Or some kind of unique client PC environment variable which I can set on the PC?

    Not that I know of.  Browser's are a sandbox and do not freely pass machine information to web servers.  Maybe build a browser plugin.
