A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories. Title : Classless in-addr.arpa delegation Author(s) : H. Eidnes, G. de Groot Filename : draft-degroot-classless-inaddr-00.txt Pages : 6 Date : 05/19/1995 This document describes a way to do in-addr.arpa delegation on non-octet boundaries. The proposed method should thus remove one of the objections to do subnetting on non-octet boundaries but perhaps more significantly, make it possible to assign IP address space in smaller chunks than 24-bit prefixes without losing the ability to delegate authority for the corresponding in-addr.arpa mappings. The proposed method is fully compatible with the original DNS lookup mechanisms specified in , i.e. there is no need to modify the lookup algorithm used, and there should be no need to modify any software which does DNS lookups either. Internet-Drafts are available by anonymous FTP. Login with the username "anonymous" and a password of your e-mail address. After logging in, type "cd internet-drafts" and then "get draft-degroot-classless-inaddr-00.txt".

Send a message to: email@example.com. In the body type: "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-degroot-classless-inaddr-00.txt". NOTE: The mail server at ds.internic.net can return the document in MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE" command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with "multipart" MIME messages (i.e., documents which have been split up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on how to manipulate these messages. For questions, please mail to Internet-Drafts@cnri.reston.va.us. Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the Internet-Draft.
