Because it can not know your exact network settings. The only thing it does is sending packets to other IP addresses. Your users should always point their browsers to 127.0.0.1, not external IP address, since fproxy binds to loopback interface, not external interfaces, otherwise it would require authentification to connect to the node. When you get 3-4 nodes up & running, you can try to connect them by exchanging noderefs. to do all this in pure darknet (without access to internet) just remove seednodes.fref file in freenet's root directory. You may put it back when you decide to use opennet. However, since you use LAN, you should probably not use opennet connections, since it is WERY easy to find out that you run freenet when you do so. Hope this helps.
