It was brought to our attention by Mike Jager at the
conference that someone is already announcing the APE prefix into the APE.
This should also make it a little harder for anyone to accidentally
provide free transit between the exchanges.
A bit of an update on this, after reviewing things before presenting the
results at APRICOT in KL last week.
* The lone APE OSPF speaker disappeared on the Friday night of NZNOG.
* The number of boxes numbered out of the APE /24 that would deliver a
packet internationally for me decreased from 46 to 44 in the month
between NZNOG and APRICOT (with the number of boxes responding to an ARP
scan of the APE /24 increasing from 75 to 76), so we're now at 58%ish of
boxes providing free international transit.
Remember that if you're carrying a route for the IXP prefixes
internally, your network still has the potential to carry packets
between IXPs that you're not being paid for. Updated slides are
