Dear All,

The RIPE NCC is pleased to announce that the Routing Information
Service's (RIS) second Remote Route Collector in North America,
RRC11, is now ready to peer with members at the New York
International Internet Exchange (NYIIX). The collector is our first
outside of the RIPE region to accept IPv6 peering sessions. The RIS
is also present at MAE-West in San Jose and we are currently looking
for more peers there too.

Please see the following URLs for peering details:

Your BGP feeds are warmly welcome :)

Other RIS Developments:
- -----------------------

* New web interface for RISwhois - RIPE NCC IPv4/IPv6 address to
origin mapping 

The service looks up IPv4 or IPv6 addresses in the RIB dumps most
recently collected by the RIS, and reports the prefixes and origin AS
numbers which match the specified IP, as well as the RRCs that
observed the prefixes.  


* RIS 'MOAS' Report

List of prefixes being advertised by Multiple Origin Autonomous


* Documentation on how to set up the RISng database and the
associated tools

An in-depth overview of the RIS database structure written by two
students at the Technical University of Munich. 


* Libbgpdump 1.4 is now available on the RIS web site

Libbgpdump is a C library for reading Zebra/Quagga dump files with
IPv4 and IPv6 support. The software package also includes 'bgpdump',
a drop-in replacement for route_btoa with IPv6 support and better
handling of corrupt data.
