>             Project: CloudStack
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>      Security Level: Public(Anyone can view this level - this is the default.) 
>          Components: Doc
>    Affects Versions: 4.1.1
>         Environment: all

>            Priority: Blocker
>              Labels: networking
> Networking seems to be the biggest problem that new users have in getting started.
> 1) This page needs some diagrams to make it easier to understand what is being described.
> There are some magical statements or statements about something that the administrator
must do with no reference to a section describing how to do it or when it must be done.
> 2) CIDR is used without any definition or explanation.
> 3) The user is told that IP addresses need to be allocated without any suggestion of
how this is done. This needs to be clarified. 
> 4) It might be useful to split this page into at least 2 pages - Basic and Advanced.
> In the Basic, it would be helpful to describe in some detail the most common test or
small organization environments. 
> The audience here is a system administrator that has a broad but not too deep knowledge
of networking.
> Someone with 2-5 servers behind a simple firewall with 1-5 public IP addresses. I suggest
writing the first draft for a person with 1 public IP address behind a simple firewall and
see how hard it is to extend that to multiple public IPs without getting into an advanced
> The Advanced is more complex but it is also easier to describe since you can assume that
the audience is a network administrator who has a lot more in-depth knowledge of networing,
routers, VLANs, etc.
