Their program needs to have admin access to one of two network cards (as it creates and sends custom packets). Would a virtual machine support this?

I'm a crypto-n00b, so this may be a dumb question, but if you are trying to get the hash of two strings builtin and securely, why not use the hash H(builtin||[somedelimiter]||securely)?

@Rell3oT Full admin access (ie, "Run as Administrator"). It won't work without it.

@CodesInChaos: No, yes, and "it depends". The connection is a raw query, and defaults to port 4096/7 (the software typically runs with two internal instances), but this can be changed to any available port.
