Re: Paul Brislen:
" The ISP doesn't. It's up to the rights holder to determine that
you've downloaded that file called The Terminator and that it's a
movie and that they have the rights to it and that you haven't got the
rights to download it.
if they can't demonstrate that to the ISP (which will then check its
records to determine if that file was downloaded and if so at what
time and by whom) then the ISP rejects the claim."
I don't quite get this. I know the ISP will have records of who had
what IP address and perhaps even fairly detailed logs of how much
throughput over the day, but if they get told that whatever IP at
8:08:45 pm was observed downloading The Terminator, are any of the the
ISP's able to refute that? Do they even log what kind of traffic I was
doing at the time? Do they keep track of http vs. torrent vs. skype
Sorry to ask here, but it seemed like the best place to get an
informed answer. Also, beer...
The New Zealand Network Operators Group (NZNOG) is holding their
annual conference and training workshops in the Garden City of
Christchurch at the end of January 2012. The conference will run
across the 26th and 27th of January and as always will include leading
speakers in the field of Internet operations from New Zealand and much
farther afield. Training workshops and tutorials will precede the
conference and run from the 23rd to the 25th of January.
The annual conference, workshops and tutorials are a once a year
chance for individuals and organisations involved in Internet
operations to meet and share the latest in Internet operations,
technology practices and receive high quality training. The event is
unique in New Zealand and attracts technical, skilled individuals with
a genuine interest in Internet operations and Internetworking
The event will be held at the Copthorne Commodore near Christchurch
Airport. Accommodation is available on site as well as in the

Sorry if this is OT but my thinking is that if you don't know, then it's
going to be a hard job finding one that does.
For my broadband I have a boring old iHug - now Voda - ADSL connection.
A lot of my work involves monitoring and managing remote websites.
(Probably) since the new government legislation came into effect, my
guess is that I am now behind a transparent proxy for web traffic.
Now, I'm not *too* bothered by that ( well, except when it falls to
pieces like one evening last week! ), but in final testing I often
override DNS with a local host entry. This no longer works, and my SP
sends me to the production one every time. This is a major problem.
Does anyone know...
a) whether this can be disabled?
b) whether there is another provider out there who doesn't do this?
I've got plenty of servers worldwide that I can route all my traffic
through in an encrypted manner which would almost certainly circumvent
this, but I shudder to think what can of worms that would open!

The NZNOG mailing list exists to facilitate discussion among operators
of networks in New Zealand on matters relevant to network operators as
described in the list's Acceptable Use Policy. That policy appears later
in this posting.
The NZNOG Trust is registered as a charitable entity under the Charities
Act. The trust exists to provide the legal framework needed to do jobs
like operating the bank account which holds the money which allows our
annual conferences to happen. The trust's annual returns can be read by
going to http://www.register.charities.govt.nz/ and searching for
registration number CC41726.
Other than the four trustees, the NZNOG does not have a formal membership.
The trustees are currently looking to replace some of their number. If
you've been active in NZNOG's activities and think that may be for you,
please contact one of the existing Trustees.
NZNOG holds New Zealand's only annual technical networking conference.

NZNOG 2012 - Call for Participation and Papers
The next conference of the New Zealand Network Operators' Group is to be
held in Christchurch, New Zealand between 23/25 January and 27 January 2012.
The conference will run across the 26th and 27th of January and as always
will include leading speakers in the field of Internet operations from New

attracts technical, skilled individuals with a genuine interest in Internet
operations and Internetworking technologies.
The conference is low priced and has a strong technical focus with the
aim and history of getting a strong turnout of technical personal from
New Zealand Internet orientated companies.
NZNOG 2012 will consist of up to three days of workshops and tutorials
followed by two days of conference presentations. There will also be
opportunity for more informal and small lightening talks. These are
typically around five minutes long and are organised closer to the

NZNOG 2012 Conference: 23/25-27 January 2012
SIG / Miniconf / Tutorials / Workshops
In previous years we have had three day workshops and a day of tutorials,
this year we are looking to repeat this if we can get the submissions.
Examples of past activities workshops include 'MPLS and fixed access
networks for beginners', 'Mikrotik RouterOS Training', 'APNIC Internet
Resource Management Essentials', and a System Administrators
mini-conference which included talks on 'Using Debian packages for
system administration' and '42 hosts in 1U: Using virtual machines'.
The main conference program for 2012 will be made up of two days with a
single stream where possible. Presentations don't need to fit any particular
fixed length and can be from 30 minutes to 3 hours in length.
NZNOG conferences have traditionally spanned the entire operational
spectrum, and then some. Proposals for conference presentations are invited
for virtually any topic with a degree of relevance to the NZNOG community.
If we get enough talks that centre around 'Network operations during an
emergency', or 'holy crap! how did the operations community do after that
quake? What can we do better?', or similar we will make that a bit of a
Past years' talks have included the following:
- Internet exchange operations
- Global anycast networks and the building thereof
- Peering, peering, and peering
- Network security
- 10GB ethernet operations
- How to build a router in these tough and difficult economic times
- Current Internet research in NZ
- Wireless networking
- QOS over carrier networks
- Content distribution networks and media streaming
- Open Source VoIP Platform in Carrier Environments
- Lawful Interception
- Designing networks for High Availability
- ISP scenarios for IPv6 deployment
- Monkeying around on the APE
Some ideas for this year also include the following:
- How we feared when Christchurch fell off the grid
- IPv6, been there done that
- DNS Security
- Routing Security
- Review of 2011
- Internet Filtering
- How Cloud Computing has impacted Network Design
If you are interested in submitting a talk please fill out the questions
at then end of this document and email them totalks(a)nznog.org
When considering a presentation or SIG, remember that the NZNOG audience
is mainly comprised of technical network operators and engineers with a wide
range of experience levels from beginners to multi-year experience. There is
a strong orientation to offer core skills and basic knowledge in the SIGs
and to address issues relevant to the day-to-day operations of ISPs and
network operators in the conference sessions.
The inclusion of a title, bio, topic, abstract, and slides with proposals
is not compulsory but each will help us determine the quality of your
proposal and increase the likelihood it will be accepted.
Final slides are to be provided by 15 January 2012.
Note: While the majority of speaking slots will be submitted by 15
December 2011, a limited number of slots may be available for presentations
that are exceptionally timely, important, or of critical operational
The NZNOG conference is a TECHNICAL conference so marketing and commercial
content is NOT allowed within the program. The program committee is charged
with maintaining the technical standard of NZNOG conferences, and will
therefore not accept inappropriate materials. It is expected that the
presenter be a technical person and not a sales or marketing person. The
audience is extremely technical and unforgiving, and expects that the
speakers are themselves very knowledgeable. All sessions provide time for
questions, so presenters should expect technical questions and be prepared
to deliver insightful and technically deep responses.
Funding and Support
NZNOG conferences are community run and funded events that try to keep the
cost to attendees as low as possible so generally we are unable to pay the
travel costs of speakers. There is a limited amount of funding available to
Conference presenters will not have to pay any registration fee for the day
they are presenting. Discounts for SIG and lightning talk presenters may
be available but are not automatic.
Lightning talks are short talks/presentations that last no more than 10
minutes. This is a good opportunity to get your pet topic out there or
perhaps to get some experience with presenting without having to go to a
full talk. At NZNOG 2012 it is planned that there will be at least one
hour long lightning talk session.
There are opportunities remaining for organisations to sponsor various
aspects of the NZNOG meeting.
Please contactsponsorship(a)nznog.org for more information
Talks and Papers
Please submit all talk proposals (including lightning talks) via
email totalks(a)nznog.org along with the requested information. Questions
regarding talks can be sent to the same address.
Sponsorship may be available for a limited number of overseas speakers
to attend the conference, please indicate if you require assistance
with travel and/or accommodation.

The CIRP would exist under the United Nations, comprise of 50 Member States, be funded by the United Nations, run by staff from the UN’s Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) arm, and report directly to the UN General Assembly."

Subject: [apnic-talk] ISP routing policies survey
Cc: Schapiram(a)gmail.com, Phillipa Gill <phillipa(a)cs.toronto.edu>
Some of you may have seen the recent discussion on the NANOG list,
about how research on Internet routing could really benefit from a
better understanding of current routing policies. But we researchers
need help from you, the operators, to better understand routing
So, we created a short survey. Over 80 ops have already taken our
survey, and we need your help to collect more responses. The survey should
take under 5 minutes to complete. Feel free to answer all of our
questions, or just a few:
We'll keep the data anonymous, and use it to improve research
on interdomain routing and security. We'll also post aggregated
results to relevant mailing lists (here, NANOG, etc).
Thanks to those who have already filled in our survey, and we look
forward to your responses!
