Re: BBN Peering issues

  • From: Sean M. Doran
  • Date: Fri Aug 14 13:08:49 1998

| Private Exchange.  It is a private exchange between SPRINT and Exodus.

I see.  And is it your assertion that Exodus does not pay for this
peering, and that, moreover, the payment does not include transit
services?

One of the reasons I wonder, of course, is that it is pretty
apparent from traceroutes that Sprint is not routing towards
Exodus uniformly (see below, note different exits).

Now why would Sprint do that on a settlement-free basis?

I'm also curious about the assertion that you have no transit
at all.  Not even from Worldcom, maybe?

I'm sure a public reassertion that there Exodus has NO 
paid-for transit from ANYONE would be interesting to everyone.

note Seattle versus San Jose.

Interestingly: vio.com    SOA     NS.CARAVAN.com hostmaster.NS.CARAVAN.com
NS.CARAVAN.COM seems to live behind bayarea.net, a BBN Planet customer.
