[K12OSN] LTSP Setup question.

I interpret his question to mean "the main school LAN, so I can hook up 
my workstations directly to the network drops going to the wiring 
closet(s)."  I have to do this in my environment; we use 10.x.x.x 
addresses behind our enterprise firewall.  I'm not sure he means 
"globally routable IP addresses" specifically, though it's possible that 
his district or school may indeed use globally routable addresses on 
their LAN behind their firewall.  We did this for a long time up until 
about two years ago with our Class B, and some very old, very badly 
written programs still, alas, require them to function correctly.


What gets me about that is that the bosses are willing to give millions 
of dollars--per year--to Microsoft, but they won't spend $50,000 to have 
these ancient, badly written programs rewritten!  Go figure.
