1. A system for remotely updating a program configuration, comprising:

  • a client device configured to execute a computer program to perform a remote update, the client device comprising;

    a first processor coupled to memory storing the computer program which, when executed by the processor (i) performs physical device recognition on the client device to determine machine parameters, and (ii) generates unique device identifiers for the client device, the unique device identifiers based at least in part on the determined machine parameters; and

    a first transceiver configured to send the unique device identifiers to at least one server via Internet; and

    an update server configured to collect the unique device identifiers from at least one client device, the update server comprising;

    a second processor coupled to memory and configured to analyze the unique device identifiers at the update server, and to determine based on the analyzed unique device identifiers an updated program configuration; and

    a second transceiver configured to deliver via the Internet data representing the updated program configuration to the client device for storage therein.
