Wad's exactly right -- I spent too many years at MIT and so typed 18.* 
without thinking.  The correct IPs for the XS (no idea why there are 2) 
are in fact:  (pingable, ssh, etc)  (schoolserver?)

I remain very concerned that is not pingable from the 
XO-1.5s, even when this IP's names {schoolserver, 
schoolserver.providence.uwimona.edu.jm} are pingable, responding with

Hopefully Sameer who helped with the original XS networking config 2 
months ago can respond to Wad's WAN/LAN request below??

>>> One XO-1.5 successfully registered back on Saturday.  It successfully then pushed 36MB to the XS' /library/users/SHC03801C2E (after running /usr/bin/ds-backup.sh on the XO-1.5 and waiting ~30min).  So we went home Saturday night with a false sense of confidence!

EG. directory /library/users/SHC03801C18 on XS is just 1 of many examples of an XO-1.5 "incompletely" registering -- all similar directories contain:
