RE: Can a customer take IP's with them?

I may be missing the point here, but the address space in question is probably of a PA status as opposed to PI - hence they are deemed non-portable in the first instance. Given that the customer has had an alternative block and been given more than reasonable time to renumber I would say that the ball is firmly in Alex's court - not his fault if they can't get their sh*t together. Just thinking, the easiest way forward might be to simply to refuse to deaggregate on the basis of "the good of the Internet" - ignoring any multihomers that NAC may have out of their aggregates, for the sake of argument. Additionally according to the size of the block and filtering, 8001 will probably up transiting the traffic anyway with no commercial agreement in place, which is obviously unacceptable. I'd dig out initial contract(s) with the customer, as if there was no clause there specifically outlining ownership of address space (yes, I know the concept is a fallacy) then you could go with whatever ARIN recommendation was in force at the time. I had some space from way back when which I think was previous to these sort of issues with regard to portability ('94-95), culminating in a letter from the RIR involved saying words to the effect of "you should return the address space for aggregation reasons, but legally you don't have to" Regards, Jess. -- Jess Kitchen ^ burstfire.net[works] _25492$ | www.burstfire.net.uk
