Compu$erve RFC 1123 5.3.3 violation

  • From: Randy Bush
  • Date: Fri Nov 15 17:36:54 1996

The following bounce from Comp$Serve violates RFC 1123 5.3.3.  They have
been repeatedly informed of this and refuse to fix their mail system.
Hence mailing lists here prevent subscription by Compu$erve addressees.
I suggest that others, e.g. the nanog list, do the same.

I do not see how you get to this conclusion.  He did not say number of ASs
which only appear through one other unique AS, i.e. are single homed.  Oh,

What is a 'top' prefix?  Lowest IP?  Shortest prefix?  Actually, for
embarrassment sake, I would want to see the most likely candidates for
aggregation.  But if I wanna see it, I can look in one of my routers.

Far out!  Maybe so!

Sorry.  I have to convert my RADB RPSL one into a placeholder RIPE-181++ for
the MCI-RR, and that's the descr:.  For the real aut-num: see the RADB.  I
would think Tony would be picking up the latter.  Old habits, TB?
