Tech Console cannot see Teacher machines through the LCS

Problem: 
Tech Console cannot see Teacher machines through the LCS

Cause:
Currently, the Tech Console cannot communicate with the teachers via the LCS. This is due to the current architecture of the software, and will be changed in the future.

Solution:
The Tech Console has a "hybrid" mode, where you can set Subnet 2 of the IPDirected Broadcast Address to 255.255.255.255. As long as the UDP packets can traverse the subnets/VLAN's, your teacher(s) will appear.



LanSchool encourages customers to request a UserVoice private forum invite. This is where new features get implemented into the software faster than any other avenue.
