Re: IP ranges, re- announcing 'PA space' via BGP, etc

I would expect some sort of confirmation that Level3 has allocated the block to them - if there is no swip or RADB object, the customer should request that Level3 create one (or both). If Level3 cannot do either (unlikely) I'd request direct contact from Level3 confirming the allocation.

Initial instinct has to just be 'yuck', but in the interest of getting
the job done, I'd look at :

- how is it registered ? Are your customer mentioned ?
- is it already a prefix which is announced seperately from the rest of
the aggregated block ?
- if the customer wants to multihome, have they even considered PI ?
- are the customer happy for you to talk to the aggregating company ?
are you happy to talk to them ?
- it's still 'yuck'.
