Re: NATs *ARE* evil!
Also sprach Dave Curado >ARIN has a (difficult) job to do, and from my experiences they do it >well. >1) You need to follow their rules/instructions >2) You can never supply them with too much information. >3) A good attitude helps. OK...but here's my problem now (after hearing from an arin person with some more information). My rant has changed from, "ARIN can't count." To, "ARIN doesn't/didn't follow their own published policies." ARIN's web site (at the time that we submitted our request for a /19, and at the time that the /20 was approved) indicated a requirement that the provider renumber out of the upstream provided space. Looking at the ARIN web site now...its hard to tell...I can't figure out from their web site whether we fall under the multi-homed requirements, or the initial allocation requirements, or some combination of the two. Suffice it to say that ARIN's policies are not exactly easy to understand for someone that hasn't ever dealt with ARIN before. I will be getting in contact with ARIN (hopefully today) with the contacts I received from this list (it has been a royal pain to get anyone on the phone at ARIN in the past) and hopefully get all of this resolved. Anyway...thanks for the information from everyone on the list...my estimation of ARIN has improved, but its still below water...we'll see how the phone calls go. -- Jeff McAdams Email: [email protected] Head Network Administrator Voice: (502) 966-3848 IgLou Internet Services (800) 436-4456
