[K12OSN] FL_Teachertool - broadcast - localhost

I knew it had to be too simple.  In my /etc/hosts file, I just put 
"localhost" as an alias for the server ip (last line of file):   server.ltsp     server  localhost

I am not sure why this wasn't in the K12ltsp distribution as part of the 
install.  It seems like everyone would have this problem??
