Re: Re: KPNQwest ns.eu.net server.

  • From: Jared Mauch
  • Date: Thu Jun 06 10:21:56 2002

	While a good idea, not everyone can announce or reach the
IX fabrics that they connect to or are out there.

	One solution to that problem is to have the IX operate a
zeebra/gated/whatnot box (or router+machine combo) that
announces a /24 and as part of connecting to the IX people
are required to peer (and provide transit) for that /24 for
the "good of the internet".

	This would allow everyone that connects to the IX to see
the benifits of having a close (to their network that is) dns server
as well as if my provider does not announce the DE-CIX, LINX, mae-e, mae-w,
paix, nyiix, or whatever space to me, i can still reach a server
placed at the IX via their network or via their peers/upstreams.
