Using a local net + tunnel or nat is fine for the buildslaves, but we
don't have to. There's a block of 19 static IPv4 addresses allocated for
us by the Media Lab. It's documented in pretty obscure place: the
sugarlabs.org zone file which is in a git repo on our master nameserver
lightwave. For more info:


If it works well for you, I think we could continue using the private
network to save IPs for public-facing machines.
