    ICANN / IANA - 512 Byte UDP Packets Are Big Enough
    by Anonymous on Wednesday July 14 2004, @07:16AM (#13958)

    http://www.iana.org/procedures/delegation-data.htm l

    "If the number of name servers or IP addresses in the delegation exceeds eight (8), the size of responses to reasonable queries with the intended delegation will be checked to ensure that such responses fit into a 512 byte UDP packet. This is the standard size limitation for UDP response packets for most resolving name server software on the Internet today.

    In one year the IANA staff will undertake a re-evaluation of the 512 byte limit."

    Find 8 Companies to Operate .NET for $1 Each ?
    by Anonymous on Wednesday July 14 2004, @07:27AM (#13959)
    Given the Rule of 8, all the .NET owners have
    to do is to find 8 companies willing to operate
    the .NET TLD servers (one server per company)
    for a small amount per name per year.

    If the 8 companies each charge $1 per name, then
    the .NET names are $8 per year. An 8 year old
    could do that math.

    With 5,000,000 .NET names a company would have to
    operate the .NET TLD server for $5,000,000 per
    year. That is $625,000 per month.

    How many companies could do that on that budget ?

    Are there 8 companies that could operate such
    servers ?

    The mechanisms being deployed right now that require IETF work and
    forward progress are as follows:

    Tunnel Broker, 6to4 (mostly done), Teredo, DSTM, ISATAP, and NAT
    Bypasses. Other exist but these are dominant. /jim
