Re: UUNET Pulling Peering Agreements & replacing them with charging under non-disclosure?

Will > packets still travel from X(customer) to A(customer) and back again? [inet-access deleted] It depends whether X has transit from B, C, or some other peer of A. If yes, then yes. If no, then no. Because if X just peers with B and with C, neither B nor C is going to announce X's routes to A... If this isn't obvious to anyone following these discussions let me know and I'll write something up for people to look at and hopefully grok, which should cut down on the noise level. But noone's talking about cutting themselves off from UUNET. That's not an option, obviously. Certain other pissing matches have involved other somewhat-large networks cutting themselves off from each other and no real harm was done (in terms of customer-loss - i.e. economic harm) to either network, but that wouldn't be the case with loss of connectivity to UUNET (or to a number of others).
