Thank you all for the advice.  Bill, for clarification, I am just
using a class B network as an example.  My question ( I should have
stated more clearly) I am wondering about some of the preliminary
steps involved (for a professional, which I am not at this point - but
hope to be someday) to get past a firewall, while doing a pen test, so
they can perform your assessments/reports. 

It is worth noting that getting past the firewall *at all* is deeper
into the network than the administrator likely intended - i.e., even
being able to get past the firewall is an important conclusion.

And something that, in an ideal world, simply isn't possible. Of course,
in practice, this might be possible.
