RE: Operational Issues with 22.214.171.124/8 - or, does the Army read NANOG posts?
Yes, but can you help us get it fixed, since you know about their inner workings? This is continually using valuable resources of ours and the others out there that have been kind enough to help. New sites are hitting the "inaccessible" list every day. I try to post only sites like this one, or ones that seem to have a common thread between them - i.e. they use the same transit... This is why we posted to NANOG for help - in the hopes that someone somewhere in the community is either involved or knows people involved with these networks.

The US military is well-known for firewalling all non-US IP addresses around the world. This makes it kind of hard for people in NATO (served by Belgacom Skynet, and issued IP space from them) to contact people in the US military. This is one of those standard "Oops" situations that periodically crops up whenever they get some new 16 year-old firewall operator that doesn't understand why the moron before him had a non-US IP address in the "allowed" list, and promptly decides to remove it without checking with anyone. Doing martian filtering for 69/8 is nothing compared to the kind of stupidity we see from them on a regular basis. I say this as a former DISA.MIL Technical POC, so I have seen the kind of stupid stuff they do, first-hand and from the inside. -- Brad Knowles, <[email protected]> "They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." -Benjamin Franklin, Historical Review of Pennsylvania.
