Can MAC Addresses be converted to IP addresses. Is there any address convertor software to convert MAC to IP address, or is there any method of doing the same. Please guide me.
Thanks & Regards,

Software to convert MAC to IP address
Unfortunately there is not any software available to do this, but it is possible to convert Mac address to IP address the other way. IP has a built-in feature Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) that translates IP address to Mac address, and cannot do it vice-versa.
ARP cache maintains a list of IP addresses and matching Mac addresses, and is available on network adapters and IP routers.
Windows OS and other OS can provide access to the local ARP cache using the command “arp”.
Type “arp –a” at the command (DOS)> display all entries in ARP cache.
