Sounds like you may want to patch auth/olpcxs :-)

During the startup of Browse, we add a cookie to the cookies.sqlite
file. The cookie is for the domain of the XS, and the value of it is
based on the laptop's serial number & uuid. Have a look at the moodle

Of course, it depedns on the XS knowing about the SN and uuid in
advance - and that happens with registration. Registration across 2
networks is not going to be easy :-/
