Re: Traffic to our customer's address(18.104.22.168/8) seems blocked by packet filter

This sounds very much like a bully -- 2 /16's are a major
problem, as opposed to a single /8?
Where is the major heartburn in this particlualr case?
I could understand if here were lots of farctured
annnounced space (granted: I haven't checked this yet),
but what's up with that?

FWIW, if you don't announce your aggregate, do not be surprised if you
experience continued disconnectivity to many parts of the Internet. Some
SPs notice that SoftbankBB have received 126/8, so will likely filter as
such. Leaking sub-prefixes may be fine for traffic engineering, but this
generally only works best if you include a covering aggregate.
Try including your /8 announcement and see if this improves reachability
Out of curiosity, why pick on a /16 for traffic engineering? Most people
tend to analyse traffic flows and pick the appropriate address space
size as a subdivision. Or do you have 256 links to upstream ISPs and
need that level of fine-tuning?
