[K12OSN] K12LTSP 5 EL: no Web access for non-terminal clients

Your DHCP server (which I assume is your K12LTSP server) needs to tell
clients where the gateway is.  dhcpd.conf should have a line like:

option routers;  (obviously, don't use my example address)

Your thin clients have web access because they're nat'ing to the K12LTSP
server, and the K12LTSP server apparently knows where its gateway
(router) is.  The other clients, though, need to be told where their
gateway (router) is.
