wondering if anyone from TVNZ On Demand is on this list and wouldn't
mind contacting me offlist regarding problems streaming if a user has an
IPv6 address. The helpdesk doesn't appear to know what ipv6 is so
thought I'd try an alternative.
It took 2h.
About 30m to make an OpenFlow controller PC out of bunch of trash, and boot
my controller DVD. "ed" wasn't available on my controlled DVD so I made
Andy use nano to configure it. That slowed us down quite a bit.
90m to put OpenFlow firmware on a 3780 switch, including walking up and
down the hill to VUW get 1G SFPs.
So if you have any questions about whether OpenFlow/SDN works/forwards
packets in hardware - ask Andy. He knows. And has a live CD controller.

Can someone who looks after Xtra's mail systems please contact me. We're
seeing problems with Xtra customers delivering mail to a domain recently
transferred from Xtra to DTS. It looks like there are some legacy records
left behind from the removal process.

Does anyone know if the TelstraClear 6to4 relay is down again?
This looks like what happened in May last year, except that this time, I'm working with a brand new router, so it could just be me. I think I've got the hang of the RouterOS firewall and the packet dumps say the 6to4 packets are going out, but I don't trust RouterOS that much yet.
If you are using APNIC as an RPKI trust anchor, please update your
Trust Anchor Set.
APNIC will be switching to a new RPKI 'split' trust anchor system
on the 25th of October. This change is needed to align APNIC
administered resources with their allocation hierarchy. These
resources will also be certified under each responsible parent
registry at the appropriate time.
In accordance with RFC6490 the old APNIC Trust Anchor Locator,
associated certificate and repository will be removed, when the
certificate expires on the 28th of October.
5 new Trust Anchor Locator (TAL) have been published. These will
be kept up to date as an independent trust anchor set for resources
maintained by APNIC. The production cycle will start on the 25th
Relying parties must add these new TAL by the 25th of October in
order to maintain continuity of validation.
If you have any questions please contact me.

Can somebody on the team that looks after Xtra's DNS servers please
contact me. I'm seeing problems with a specific record that works okay
with most/all other NZ ISPs ( the record has a short TTL but has been
broken for days ).
My work's site has a work-around in place but various other sites ( like
some at Mozilla ) will be broken for Xtra customers.
The servers I am talking about are:
