If pizzahut wants to reach a wider community, they can ask their provider to register their route in the RADB. From a routing standpoint all it needs is the prefix, prefix length, and the home-AS. As long as prior policy existed for the home-AS or the home-AS can be associated with an AS macro for which policy is defined. A given provider can register an AS macro for their direct customers that have their own AS. No more NSF AUP to worry about. If not, its pizzahut's loss. > -- > Sean Donelan, Data Research Associates, Inc, St. Louis, MO > Affiliation given for identification not representation BTW- Is pizzahut the most valuable resource you could come up with that is not reachable from ANSNET? Once we are free of the AUP, we can also register specific networks with the RADB at our customer's request and the other guys approval even if their own provider is too stuborn to do so. We'll see if we get any urgent requests to register Pizzahut's class C address. We can do this now, but Pizzahut probably can't justify use for research and education and has a provider that doesn't have an agreement with ANS to carry commercial traffic (as required by the NSF for purely commercial traffic and heartily supported by the OIG in their 1993 review of the NSFNET program).
