Just to clarify, I'm not the original poster on the thread :) My point was - if I am using this software and I have an unstable internet connection where my machine's IP could change during the day, it would report to the authentication server that the same reg code is coming from multiple IPs. But I can see how your escalating check on suspect reg codes could account for that :)

If your software only connects once a day, and a reg code gets three hits in a day from different IPs, regardless what the IPs are, you probably have three users with the same IP. Then if that continues for a couple of days, flag that reg code and have those users software check in more frequently than once a day. Then. if during the intensive you get IP-a the IP-b then IP-c then IP-b then IP-a then IP-c etc for the same reg code within the same day, you absolutely have multiple users using one reg code.

If it is, that means that person has handed out their unlock code. If you see an unlock code that is rogue, create a text file and put it at that location on your server.
