> My shiny new IP address range is starting to feel distinctly second-hand.
In terms of "newness" RIPE's REX project is pretty cool. It gives a history of
what is known about an address range from a bunch of sources including CAIDA's
reachability data, registry databases, Spamhaus DROP and UCE PROTECT

We are having a little trouble with a new IPv4 address range recently
received from APNIC. The range is 188.8.131.52/22 (although according to
APNIC it affects the entire /8). Please see the attached email. It seems
that there are some routers which have blocks on this range, which need to
be lifted. Some of the sites we cannot connect to include: airnz.co.nz and
dse.co.nz. We suspect some email is also not getting through.
Can anyone suggest how best to get these routing blocks lifted? My shiny
new IP address range is starting to feel distinctly second-hand.
Any help you can provide would be warmly welcomed.

Subject: Filtering Previously Unallocated Addresses
Filtering Previously Unallocated Addresses
APNIC recognizes that as the IANA pool of unallocated IPv4 addresses
nears exhaustion, there may be increasing community concern about the
quality of the new address blocks made available for distribution.
It is important that you ensure your router Access Control Lists (ACLs)
are updated so addresses are not mistakenly filtered through your
routers. It may also be time to consider whether you should stop any
form of BOGON filtering.
This is especially important for newly allocated address blocks:
Keep informed about IANA allocations at:
For those with recently allocated address space here are several tips
to check whether your IP Addresses are filtered:
* Your own firewall might be blocking the new IP addresses by
default, if you set up your servers to block bogon IP ranges. To
avoid blocking potential new customers, consider whether you
should stop any form of BOGON filtering.
* Run a traceroute to see if the new IP is consistently blocked
along the same network path. It is advisable also, to test
forward and reverse paths. Use of technology like the Routing
Information Service (RIS) is highly recommended to assist in
identifying routing conditions for prefixes under test.
* Do a search on your IP address and contact those organizations
that appear to be blocking you. You may be blocked due to
activity of one of your customers.
* Use a looking glass service as part of the diagnostic tool, set
to detect network filters.
As part of our service commitment to our Members and the wider
community, APNIC is working hard to evaluate the usability of address
space allocated to APNIC before it is distributed.

I'm travelling to Auckland Wednesday and Thursday and was curious if anyone wanted to catchup for some drinks either night ?
We are expanding our Australian network into Auckland to cover our NZ client requirements - as such I was keen to catchup with some locals and see what the ISP market is like and what the carriers are like to deal with in NZ ...
Anyone interested in a beer ?

We know. It's been frustrating to schedule and we went with squeezing
between SANOG and NANOG and decided to live with a Linux.Conf.Au clash
:^( It's a shame you can't make it, and sad that we might loose some
other people as well.
> Also note that Monday 24 January 2011 is Wellington Anniversary Day:
We were aware of this too. We had the same issue last year, but it only
seemed to impact Wellingtonians who wanted to go to the routing workshop
and didn't want to use a leave day to do so. We (Netspace) sent two
bods to the workshop last year and both said it was worth it even though
they had to muck about with leave. The tutorial day and main conference
are on normal working days.
And me as well, have several potential vendor sponsors wanting to know more.
