Not to add to your woes, but do they realize they're legally obligated to have individual licenses for the OS and software on each machine?

That the software companies are out of business is irrelevant. I'm afraid that still doesn't give you the right to steal the software. If you cannot obtain licences and keys for the new installations then you will just have to find alternative software that does the job. If you pirate this software you are not doing the business a favour; you could land them, and yourself, in big trouble.

What exactly is the problematic software?

In answer to your original question, there is obviously no way that you can have two computers on a network with the same name, let alone six. No amount of thinking outside the box will help. Well, there is one solution - they revise their plans so that just the one computer will serve the purpose.

Thanks for the technical answer but you may want to save the ethics class for somebody who actually gives a crap.

As a "consultant" you should be concerned with the law. Performing illegal actions on behalf of a company is not a matter of ethics, it's a matter of common sense. And should that company end up in trouble they might well decide to sue you; they would probably win.

As you don't give a crap about that sort of thing I hope that the company decides to hire someone with a more professional outlook. They should at least be looking for someone with more sense than to ask on a public forum how to pirate software for them.

There is a world of difference between ethics and downright dishonesty. People who don't care a crap about dishonesty usually end up in jail. Combine that with an element of stupidity and it becomes even more certain.

You'll give a crap when you're stupid a$$ gets arrested for fraud and theft and you have to hire a lawyer if you wish to stay out of jail.

Idiots like you amaze me. It's one thing to pirate a copy of some software in your own home (which I also wouldn't recommend anybody do except for a quick test to see if it's something you wish to purchase and use long term) but to attempt to do it in a business situation is pretty much professional suicide and a guarantee that you will get caught and arrested.

Oh and once you're caught, just what do you think the company is going to do? I'll tell you what they're going to do, they're going to sue you. And, they'll win.

Personally, I hope you continue and get busted and sued. Some time in jail and spending the rest of your life working to pay off the debt to the company you're ripping off might do you some good. Might...... However I seriously doubt that in your case. People like you usually don't learn lessons very easily as they're too busy blaming everyone else for their woes.

You are not a professional by any stretch of the imagination. Professionals stand on integrity and refuse to do something illegal knowing their name, and therefore their business, are tied to having a good reputation.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
