The sending host will broadcast an ARP request for the MAC address. The receiving host will respond back with the MAC address if it's in the same broadcast domain.

amiit, It works as KiLLaBeE said. But I'm Not sure I understand you question. Do you want to find the MAC address of your PC's NIC ? Or another PC on the network? Or ....?

The answer to your question lies in my first post, but to expand on my answer...

The receiving host will receive the broadcast ARP request and respond to it, informing the sender what its MAC address is. The sender will then have the last piece of information to send it off.

That easy! :-)
