Dude, that wasn't a wall of text. That was a well-formatted section of information. Props to you for that.
Anyways, as far as exploiting this thing, it's obviously going to be a lot harder than the last one. The first thing that pops into mind would be (assuming this is a wired connection) to install a hardware device and sniff his traffic. Not always an option, because not everyone has access to such a device, so on to the next idea.
If you're lucky enough to have a wireless connection, a good ol' packet capture would probably do the trick. Unless of course he encrypts his traffic (as he should), in which case we need yet another approach.
You could check the version against a database of vulnerabilities and see if anyone else has had any luck in getting in. Depending on how popular this software is, you may have varying levels of success. So in that case...
Attack his computer directly. Trick him, sneak in and log in, or generally do whatever you need to do to compromise his box. I would go for a software keylogger. There are some pretty useful tools for getting into a Windows box (google "chntpw" and "konboot") without knowing the pass. Now there's a chance this won't work, so as a last resort...
You could physically beat him, as per this xkcd comic. However, I cannot see that ending well.
I hope you get some use out of my mad ranting.
