IN-ADDR.ARPA Progress Report

  • From: ARIN IN-ADDR Role
  • Date: Fri Jun 29 15:40:04 2001

Goal:

Reduce the size of the IN-ADDR.ARPA zone file. This file will be reduced
in size by only containing name servers for /8 networks.


Completed Steps:

Apr 2001 - Established relationships with 2 companies to provide
independent server networks for all ARIN IN-ADDR zone files.

Jun 2001 - Released a new IN-ADDR.ARPA zone file generator to correct
existing erroneous data.


Next Step:

July 9, 2001 - ARIN will begin revising the IN-ADDR.ARPA zone for those 
direct /8 delegations to ARIN.  These /8 zone files will be serviced by
the two ARIN nameserver networks.  These changes will not affect the
performance of reverse lookup in any of the IPv4 Address space.
