Sorry about the snap, but you have to realize that I am currently the
developer and QA department for the school
server, and it isn't even my current job. And I really do need the
answer implemented over the next week...
Some handwaving about "the best way to do it" from the peanut gallery
is fine, but don't expect to be listened to
unless you can point to existing software or are willing to help
implement the solution. We don't have infinite
(or even sufficient) resources, nor the time for development and
testing of complex solutions.
I don't understand your dislike of changing IP addresses. My current
laptop does it multiple times a day just fine,
and it should only happen when a student is moving from one place to
another (as long as Javier's comments about
avoiding flapping are heeded). We have a presence service which
provides a way for P2P applications to find
one another, even after the IP changes.
