If you have individual IP addresses for each workstation you can connect
across any LAN. If you don't have addresses assigned to your
workstations, you can safely choose ones from the following ranges of
private IP addresses. These addresses are usable on a local private
networks but won't be routed by an ISP or backbone network provider to
other Internet devices.

class A thru
class B thru
class C thru

For those of you who are dismayed by your inability to use CU from
behind a proxy server, these are the addresses that are provided to
workstations by most of the proxy servers.
