Re: 220.127.116.11/10 not in the databases
My theory is that DISO-UNRRA were originally allocated 18.104.22.168/16 through 22.214.171.124/16 in the classful world - these are all in the ARIN DB under various military guises. When CIDR came along, it seems that someone must have decided that because 126.96.36.199/16 was now available and part of a bigger block, it could be added to the announcement, etc...?
There are a total of four like this:
Network Origin AS Description
188.8.131.52/10 568 DISO-UNRRA
184.108.40.206/13 10455 Lucent Technologies
220.127.116.11/13 568 DISO-UNRRA
18.104.22.168/13 568 DISO-UNRRA
Just a theory - but the above 4 could do with the x.0.0.0/16 being put in ARIN's db, if the allocation can be proven...

I think all three of these stand on their own. * If sub-bits of an allocation are in the ARIN database, I think the supernet should be in the ARIN database. * ARIN seems to have a good many, if not all of the .MIL supernets, but doesn't have this one. * Having .MIL say they have address space is not proof that they own the whole block, anymore than www.ufp.org saying I now own 20 class A's is proof that they are mine. In any event, I'd just like network lookups to work in some sane way, so when operators need to check something they can get accurate results. -- Leo Bicknell - [email protected] - CCIE 3440 PGP keys at http://www.ufp.org/~bicknell/ Read TMBG List - [email protected], www.tmbg.org
