Re: [vox] Installfest networking

From what i understand, the EUII network connections are completly different 
from the one s in the dorms. (when i was in the dorms i used to use my laptop 
to check, and it failed to work).  I do know that the CS Dept has their own 
private subnet/DHCP servers/NAMs/Switches, and that the Campus Computing 
Resources stuff ends at the Switch room.  Not sure how true it is, but heard 
it from a guy who works for EE.
