You're in deep yogurt, then, because - by definition - no two devices with the same IP address is allowed to exist on one network. If you're planning to ship units that have to have the same IP address, your product will have a very short life cycle. But...

If, for purpose of factory testing, you need to do testing on 4 identical units at once, all with the same address, you have to configure each unit to listen for and respond to test commands on a specific port, and configure the test environment to use fixed addressing with no DHCP service active. You can then spoof the test network into thinking it's hosting one machine with 4 ports, and configure the main router to use port forwarding to talk to each of the machines on its distinct port.

A far better approach would be to either change the IP addresses of the UUTs and run the tests sequentially, or rewrite the tests to run on the UUT as it should be done, and again change the UUT IP address to be unique on the network. The advantage of the latter method is that the test code is downloaded to the UUT and allowed to run, without interaction from the other three machines or the host, until the test is complete. After a decent interval, the test host machine can poll each of the UUTs for test results. If they've blocked you somehow from changing the device IP addresses, tell them to enjoy carnal knowledge of a rolling donut, and go find a job with a real company that has a chance of remaining in business for a while. This one's doomed.
