Citylink's official Debian mirror (ftp.nz.debian.org) is apparently
again broken (not even listening on port 80 from where I'm sitting).
Would anyone be seriously interested in donating rack space, national
transit, or hardware to the cause of another official Debian mirror for
Having reliable and cheap access to free software projects like Debian
is critically important, and having a second official mirror seems like
a no-brainer to me.
I am very happy to donate my time to admin and monitor any equipment
provided for this, and to liase with the Debian project as required.
Perhaps Citylink could give us some insight in to the traffic levels
their existing mirrors see?
Hi all; was looking something up for a client and noticed the Noc list here;
- could do with some updating.
Voyager is missing, other things I know to be wrong are that several of the
Noc's listed have been subsumed into larger orgs.

If there's a mail admin from canterbury.ac.nz on list, could you have a
quick look at your server?
We're not seeing mail coming from you because your server doesn't come
back to have another go.
We run a 10 minute greylist timer but you don't seem to come back for

Hi all, I have an interesting issue. Just upgraded our mail server to
Since the upgrade we found that the srs-milter would crash around 05:50
and 22:20 everyday. (Obviously it's got a bug)
Turns out everyday around 05:50 we get a connection from
And every night around 20:20 we get a connection from
They both seem to be running CanIt-Domain-PRO anti-spam filter.
I cannot just block the scanner as the address is shared with MX's (ie:
canit-scanner-2.slingshot.co.nz[188.8.131.52] and canit-slingshot-mx-2.t3.nz)
Seems like the scanner is sending 'unusual' data once a day on a schedule.
Any ideas what that single daily connection is about? or workarounds?
PS: Apart from fixing the bug myself...

The next AusNOG conference is only four months away, scheduled to be
held at The Langham, Melbourne, on 7 & 8 September 2017, so we are
making our first call for presentations of interest to the Internet
operations community. Previous feedback has suggested that attendees
would like more content from the community so we'd like to encourage
members of the community to submit more proposals, especially if you
haven't previously presented!
Internet operations is a broad topic but some areas of interest are:
* Improving the redundancy/resiliency/sustainability of your network
* Using automation to improve service reliability
* Taking the network operations BCP to the next level
* Using 'offline' communications tools to keep the network working
* Evolution in network architectures and scaling issues
* Analysis of relevant major operational events of the year
Naturally other topics that are of interest to the network operator
community are also welcome but presentations of a purely marketing
nature are not welcome at this technical event.
Notes to presenters
Preference will be given to presentations that result in actual
Session speakers should be prepared to present for 30 minutes.
Keynote speakers will be expected to present for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Short presentations of strong operational content are also acceptable.
Please note any timing constraints when submitting a presentation.
By submitting a presentation for consideration in the AusNOG 2017
programme, and if selected the presenter will allow AusNOG to:
* Take photographs of the presentation and presenter
* Record and rebroadcast video and audio of the presentation and
* Redistribute the presentation slides, audio, video, and photographs
electronically, on the AusNOG website, or otherwise but leaving
all intellectual property in the hands of presenter or rightful

2017 event. As in previous years you must be registered to attend AusNOG
2017 in order to be considered for a lightning talk.
: AusNOG accepts that some speakers are unable to allow us to archive
their presentation due to company or corporate policy, and if the
situation arises AusNOG will delete all copies in its possession after
Good Morning List,
I was wondering if anyone out here (there :)) has a working config for
an Alcatel 7750 to give out IPv6 to subscribers. We would like to
allocate /112's as a link net between the CPE and the BNG. We then want
to route a /64 or /48 over this link net. All of this is configured in
The link-nets are configure using the "wan-host" option under the
subscriber interface. The /64 or /48 subnets is part of a /36 configured
as the "pd" option.
From what I was reading, it appears as if the link-nets needs to be
/64...surely not ?
