Not that I know of.
You're only going to see the MAC address of a directly connected system,
not those of any other box connected to the first one's other interface,
even if you are able to do ARP over PPPoE.
This is more people-policy stuff I think, unlikely to have a technical
solution. Some ISPs tell people they're not permitted to use NAT, but
I've not heard of any way of actually and reliably detecting its use.
One way to block use of the particular form of NAT implemented in M$ XP
is to give users addresses in the 192.168.0.x range, with 192.168.0.1 as
(your end's) gateway address .. since this latter address is forcibly
assigned to the NAT box's inside interface by XP's 'internet connection
sharing' .. but there are other NAT systems for windows users out there.
Others may know more than I do about this, of course .. if you wish to
pursue it further, net at freebsd.org would be the more appropriate list.
