Check Your Routing Table! Production Use of 84/8 Imminent.
The first allocation out of 84/8 has happened. It is *now* high time to check whether you see the pilot prefixes 84.192/16 and 84.255.248/21. If you do not see both of these prefixes it is extremely likely that you will have a connectivity problem very shortly. We also suggest that you check any packet filters you may be responsible for. Regards Daniel Karrenberg RIPE NCC ------ Notes: 84/8 has been allocated by the IANA on November 17th 2003, almost 4 months ago. The fact has been announced on this list a couple of times since. Routing decisions are fully within the responsibility of the network operators. The IANA and the RIRs will only announce which parts of the address space are currently in use. They have no authority whatsoever over routing decisions taken by you and other network operators. More details about the pilot prefixes can be found at http://www.ripe.net/ripe/draft-documents/deboganising-draft.html A visibility comparison of the pilot prefixes with some production prefixes can be found at http://www.ris.ripe.net/debogon/debogon.html Those interested in history, see http://www.ris.ripe.net/debogon/ More information on how to do Bogon filtering efficiently and reliably can be found at Team CYMRU: http://www.cymru.com/Bogons/index.html Unfortunately we are not currently able to provide a host within the pilot prefixes that can reliably answer pings, nor are we able to do connectivity checks from there. The allocation had to happen before we were ready with this part of the pilot prefix pilot.
