Here we are going to discuss about How to get that address by using supplied IP Address over the network.
Here is the Java Code
GetMACAddress.java

import java.net.Inet4Address;
import java.net.InetAddress;
import java.util.Arrays;

import jpcap.*;
import jpcap.packet.*;

public class GetMACAddress{
    public static byte[] arp(InetAddress ip) throws java.io.IOException{
        //find network interface
        NetworkInterface[] devices=JpcapCaptor.getDeviceList();
        NetworkInterface device=null;

loop:    for(NetworkInterface d:devices){
            for(NetworkInterfaceAddress addr:d.addresses){
                if(!(addr.address instanceof Inet4Address)) continue;
                byte[] bip=ip.getAddress();
                byte[] subnet=addr.subnet.getAddress();

MySQL Database Connection at OpenShift Redhat Cloud using PDO Class

I was very unhappy when my code was correct but could not connect to my mysql database in openshift. But after trying some tricks it got to work. So I will share some tips that you can also put to your PHP MySQL application in openshift.
First thing to be noted is that when you create a PHP Application in OpenShift you will get some environmental variable. Which you can view them by using echo $ENV_NAME in the shell. Some of MYSQL DB Environmental variables in openshift clouds are follows. OPENSHIFT_MYSQL_DB_HOST
OPENSHIFT_MYSQL_DB_PORT
OPENSHIFT_MYSQL_DB_USERNAME
OPENSHIFT_MYSQL_DB_PASSWORD
OPENSHIFT_MYSQL_DB_SOCKET
OPENSHIFT_MYSQL_DB_URL You can Find more about it here OpenShift Variables
Considering we have database name 'gitspot' and have a table name having demo where there is a field 'name' and has a record 'RedHat Openshift' Now create a php file conf.php which contains all the Database Host Port etc and the way to connect using PDO Class. <?php
