Umm... this is not a good idea. I'm assuming that these boxes are at a
workplace of some sort, hence why you want to conceal their presence and your
identity. However, I recall a person who installed the clients without
permission on Office computers and was fired over it (it was an issue with the
warranty on a server I believe). Your much better off simply explaining to the
administrator what the clients do, then asking for permission to run
them... if
not, then don't run it on those machines.
"In the end, I wonder if one of the most important steps on our journey is
the one in which we throw away the map. In jettisoning the grinds and
brambles of our own preconceptions, perhaps we are better able to find the
real secrets of each place; to remember that we are all extensions of our
collective history."
