And if you haven't been to radb.net lately, the How-To's are an excellent place to start. There is also a new java tool to send objects in or edit objects if you prefer pointing and clicking. I was able to move to pgp auth on our objects in about 15 minutes using the directions posted on the site. All in all, I found it pretty painless to register our info. We don't publically peer with anyone (yet), but it seemed like a good idea to put all the info on our AS in the radb and give people another place to find up-to-date contact information. In other words, I see no reason *not* to register your AS, maintainer and route objects there... Charles > R. Kevin Oberman, Network Engineer > Energy Sciences Network (ESnet) > Ernest O.
