RE: IRR listing of IANA-reserved, a question..

  • From: Barry Raveendran Greene
  • Date: Wed Sep 04 16:33:20 2002


List the 128-191/8 allocations first. Getting this information from the
RIR's has been tedious. After that, details on each /8 for all 256 lines
would be useful. It is a stepping stone to some of other suggestions that
are bound to come out of this thread.

Rob Thomas and I have been playing around with a more stricter ingress
prefix filter template to help ISPs get out of the "I only filter RFC1918"
rut. You can check out the drafts at:

The big question was a consensus on how to handle a template recommendation
for the old B space and C.
