Re: Operational Issues with 22.214.171.124/8...
The list of inaccessible sites continues to grow: Add to the list www.oandp.com - that looks like someone's firewall filtering in front of their DNS server, because we can't even resolve the DNS. We still can't get to www.ocas.com, www.lavalife.com, and www.indofilms.com even after calling and posting repeatedly. There are undoubtedly others out there. Repeated problems posted by myself and others show the extent of the problem with the 126.96.36.199/8 CIDR, and its lack of dependability - it's a human thing. It used to be restricted, so there are a lot of access lists out there - with all the stuff going on in the last year or so, half the people blocking it probably don't even know how to unblock it - i.e. that person no longer works here... If you look at the address space on IANA, http://www.iana.org/assignments/ipv4-address-space you will see that the last CIDR ARIN took before 69/8 was over a year prior to the 69/8 assignment. A lot happened in our industry in that year. Somewhere, this process is broken since the last CIDR was assigned to ARIN. My question is as follows - We are losing customers because of this problem. It is costing us reputation and money. It is out of our control. If you were us, what would you do? We have already asked ARIN to reassign us to a "friendlier" CIDR, and they refuse. Suggestions are welcome. Sincerely, Todd A. Blank CTO IPOutlet LLC 614.207.5853
