RE: Pitfalls of annoucing /24s
I noticed the verio filter policy, in relation to inbound: - In the traditional Class A space (i.e., 0/1), we accept /22 and shorter. If I want to announce a /24 in the 64.x.x.x space(traditional Class A space) am I'm going to have a problem with other networks that have peer filters similar to Verios?
