What about setting up a server and database on the local machine? Then just
copy the site and a dump of the database. It works for us when we need to
demo a shopping site and for local training purposes.

One problem would be how the cookie is assigned, if it's explicitly naming
the domain then you _may_ have problems. Though if the sites been created
intelligently that should only be one file to edit and perhaps make it
localhost or and all should be well. Good luck.
