RE: C&W Peering Problem?
If anyone else is seeing wierd problems with their GBLX uplinks, please let me know. I stopped announcing routes out them because some of my customers were having a lot of problems such as one IP would go through, but the next consecutive IP couldn't and would get locked up in NYC. Earlier I was seeing the same thing happen in Atlanta. They can't seem to replicate the problem, even though I have sent them several traceroutes where they are all stopping at the same point. I know that stopping my announcements is going to hamper troubleshooting, so if others are having similar problems maybe we can get them to look a little closer.
