Ask Mr. Google or Mrs. Archives. Hints: * Traffic is often asymmetric. If I browse Web pages, I receive far more traffic than I send. * Routing... hot potato or cold potato? * Ramifications of requiring (or not) consistent adverts at different locations. It boils down to attempting to make the peering "equally beneficial" to both parties. I don't necessarily agree with (nor inherently object to) the reasoning, but that's the idea. I suspect that this was discussed last June during the 174/3561 incident. Keep in mind that the peering mindset is: "I'll buy transit if I can't peer. I'll peer if I can't sell transit. I'll sell transit if I can." -- Eddy Brotsman & Dreger, Inc. - EverQuick Internet Division Phone: +1 (316) 794-8922 Wichita/(Inter)national Phone: +1 (785) 865-5885 Lawrence ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Date: Mon, 21 May 2001 11:23:58 +0000 (GMT) From: A Trap <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: email@example.com Subject: Please ignore this portion of my mail signature.
