i think it would be bad to ask this. teachers tend to be ignorant
of the facts. "What is a Termina Server? and why would i want one,
anyway? perhaps it works better if i have more of them?"

the options would be to autodetect the network in a robust way or
to provide a sane preconfiguration. you should ask as little and
as easy questions as possible.
