Re: IP Addresses for colocation

  • From: Sean M. Doran
  • Date: Fri Jun 22 09:34:54 2001

| The concern I have is this:  if we decide a few months down the road that we
| don't like this particular colocation facility and wish to move to another one
| across the street, I'd have to renumber all of my hosts.

So, it's like the DNS has totally stopped working, to the point
where there is zero possibility of adding in new A RRs?   And the
tools that allow centralizatioin of address administration, like
DHCP, have also broken down, I guess.  I blame the Internet Software
Consortium for people wanting to migrate _whole /24s_ instead of
doing a renumbering exercise when they shift gear from using one
connection to the Internet to another, since obviously their
software (like BIND and DHCP) is horribly flawed and unusable.

| Is there a better way to get a /24 that can "go anywhere"?

You can pay each of the thousands of ISPs whose routing tables
will have to carry your prefix in their routing systems... have
you considered that?  (I'll do it for 100 U.S. dollars, inquire within!)

	Sean.
