Should our university network use lanmode?

    Hi there. We have about 1000 users here at Cornell University who just moved from a Direct Connect network which was shut down to Alliance. The vast majority of people are currently running the 1.2.0 dev preview. A lot of people are using lan mode, however I am writing to find out if this is perhaps a mistake. Our university runs on multiple network addresses, specifically 128.253.0.0, 128.84.0.0, 132.236.0.0 . Because of this, will using LAN mode prevent people on different network addresses from connecting? Thanks for the help, and I will be happy to post more information if I am not being clear. Please understand that I am not well versed in networking or java. In the event that LAN mode is better turned off, we can use the firewall to keep people from connecting from outside of the University.
