You were probably verifying that PSI was announcing net 1 and had a working default route to ANS. At that point you should have received !H in the traceroute. The fact that you could rely on this anomoly also verifies the consistency of PSI incompetence in configuring their routing. Curtis BTW- You might try a traceroute to an address in 140.222/16. That's the ANS backbone. For example, traceroute 220.127.116.11 would verify that you could reach ANS NY POP. Traceroute 18.104.22.168 would give you a !H as soon as you reach an ANS interface (look for t3.ans.net in the DNS if the response is not from a 140.222 address). > -- > Dave Siegel, Director of Engineering > Network (99) Operations Center > (800)638-9947 (602)249-1190 after hours > [email protected]
