[K12OSN] New server

Buth servers have K12LTSP Fedora in them.  Because of the IP licenses 
the old one has a fixed IP that is internal to the building 10.xx.x.xxx  
Can we use fixed IP addresses in this range or will we have to change?  
Also I am fairly new to doing Linux things so is there a set of 
instructions for the actual exporting?  If so what are they? Can I plug  
an ethernet cable directly between the two servers?
