I think it's because I'm on a school network and they just want to be in control of the IP addresses on campus. I didn't really bother to ask why. Also, whenever I do a fresh install of LMCE, it detects all 300 people in my dorm and asks me if I want to add their computer's content. It's really annoying, but I'll be going home this summer. I'll set up LMCE there and then turn off the router when I come back, since I only have 1 computer in 1 room with no home automation stuff.
By the way, thanks for the quick response. I've put up a few questions before that never saw an answer, so thanks!
