[Koha] Limiting searches to local branch

  We had a request from our library teachers to limit OPAC searches to 
just the local branch/school, without requiring patron log-in. The 
apache conf that ships with Koha has some example info that would help 
set up multiple virtual hosts, but I didn't want to deal with going out 
and changing all of our OPAC station bookmarks (hey, I'm lazy :-) )

Thanks to some help from Jared Camins on irc, we came up with the 
following. Adding it to the OPAC virtual host section allows us to 
select the branch limit based on subnet and/or IP address. Works a treat!

    RewriteCond %{REMOTE_ADDR} ^10\.61\..*
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ - [E=OPAC_SEARCH_LIMIT:lo]

    RewriteCond %{REMOTE_ADDR} ^10\.14\..*
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ - [E=OPAC_SEARCH_LIMIT:pi]

    RewriteCond %{REMOTE_ADDR} ^10\.9\.12\.37
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ - [E=OPAC_SEARCH_LIMIT:es]

Hope this helps someone else!
