Re: SWIP and Rwhois in the Real World

  • From: Edward Lewis
  • Date: Wed Sep 07 04:17:15 2005


NetRange:   4.0.0.0 - 4.255.255.255
ReferralServer: rwhois://rwhois.level3.net:4321

% telnet rwhois.level3.net 4321
Trying 209.244.1.179...
telnet: connect to address 209.244.1.179: Operation timed out

Doesn't seem to have made much difference yet...
Their rwhois seems to be terminally down. Can we reclaim 4/8 from them now?
Who is "we?"

IANA says it belongs to BBN (ARIN not mentioned):
http://www.iana.org/assignments/ipv4-address-space

004/8 Dec 92 Bolt Beranek and Newman Inc.

(as opposed to)

073/8 Mar 05 ARIN (whois.arin.net)
074/8 Jun 05 ARIN (whois.arin.net)
075/8 Jun 05 ARIN (whois.arin.net)
076/8 Jun 05 ARIN (whois.arin.net)

Either IANA's records are out of date or the space was granted prior to ARIN's start (in 97 or so). ARIN (via policies) has little say over this space.
