Re: Interesting new spam technique - getting a lot more popular.
And let me tell you.. inheriting a network like that, knowing a better way to do it, will make you want to put a gun in your mouth. Two /19's worth of address space in VLAN1 (not just in one vlan, but in vlan *1*. Cisco nerds are slapping foreheads or spitting Coke right now.)
Trying to migrate customers to their own vlan when they've been alloted IPs, willy nilly, across one of the bajillion /24's secondaried on the vlan interface drives me into an entire new dimension of pissed off.
Don't even get me started on allocation and traffic accounting.

Go read WHT or GFY for 10 minutes for an example of typical hosters, and if you're not a drooling idiot in need of a brain transplant afterwards consider yourself lucky. :) And don't forget, there are hundreds of hosting networks like the ones I described, a lot of whom are in the 1 - 30Gbps traffic range, with absolutely no clue how to do better. -- Richard A Steenbergen <firstname.lastname@example.org> http://www.e-gerbil.net/ras GPG Key ID: 0xF8B12CBC (7535 7F59 8204 ED1F CC1C 53AF 4C41 5ECA F8B1 2CBC)
