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.
We have recently made some major changes at $DAYJOB with our connectivity to the outside world and our peering.
One of the things we have taken on is a 1Gbps APE peering port and Upgraded out WIX port to 100Mbps.
While I find often our inbound traffic takes a fairly efficient path (usually - tho $TRANSITPROVIDER seems to cut prepends and possibly even disaggregates some prefixes (tho this could be something hanging around)) our outbound does seem to be less efficient, especially where APE is concerned.
I am currently testing an adaption where I only accept shorter prefixes from $TRANSITPROVIDER and a default route (to avoid blackholing) the domestic transit doesn’t have a “default route” option and I want to avoid pushing domestic traffic over International if it only has a long prefix to match and isn’t peered.
Would anyone be willing to provide me some tips / tricks / advise / examples of what they do with BGP (or some good resources) that I can use to improve the routing table I use in the network?
Also does anyone have NZ Provider looking glass servers (not the NZIX as I know and use them) where I can see how other domestic providers see my announced routes and how it appears to them (so I can make changes and test but also see what I am being seen as)?
Thank you very much in advance for any help. Off list replies are welcomed and possibly better to avoid clogging up the list if people think this is too basic a request for here.

Arbor Networks 9th Annual Infrastructure Security Survey Now Open
Arbor Networks would like to invite you to participate in our annual
infrastructure security survey, an important initiative that touches
service providers, enterprises, government agencies, universities and
other network operators around the world.
Please go here to participate in the 2013 survey:
We are requesting that you complete and submit the survey by October 31,
The purpose of the survey is to gauge and report on general security
issues, practices, procedures and observations from the industry. All data
gathered from the survey will be compiled, analyzed and reported in
Arbor's 9th annual Worldwide Infrastructure Security Report which will be
published in early 2014. Individual responses will be treated anonymously
and no respondent names or company names will appear in the report or
accompanying presentations and/or marketing materials. For your reference,
our 8th annual Worldwide Infrastructure Security Report, issued earlier
this year and based on responses to last year's survey is available here:
Your industry perspectives are important to Arbor and we value your input.
Thank you, in advance, for your participation.
With best regards,
I'm sure this question has been asked a number of times before but a quick
search through the list and a Google pretty much draws a blank.
I'm working for a service provider (Mothership) and we're trying to
differentiate between national and international traffic. Any pointers?

I don't run the machine that hosts the list, but figure I should chime in
since I can provide the most up to date information.
Waikato has a fully working IPv6 upstream and our own prefix
(2001:df0:4::/48) we at Wand make good use of v6. The downside is that I
haven't seen any other departments on campus adopt IPv6 yet, apart from our
HPC group and Music group.
list.waikato.ac.nz is a campus-wide service run by our ITS division, I
haven't heard much about ITS's IPv6 deployment plans, but I'm not sure that
will help much in this case considering our email vendor (postini in this
case) doesn't have IPv6 support.
I'm pretty sure we'll have to move off postini soon considering Google is
planning to close that service down at some point. Hopefully our new email
vendor has IPv6 support?
Feel free to flick me any other questions on or off list and I'll attempt
to provide answers.
