    Europeans Do Not Lead, They Follow Like Sheep

    Europeans Do Not Lead, They Follow Like Sheep

    One can not conclude that an old, densely
    populated place on Earth is NET-literate.
    Europe is a good example. They follow the
    the dictates of the ISOC and ICANN and the
    IETF. Look at their brain-washed following of
    the IPv6 schemes.

    European government leaders see that their
    European technologists are immature and third-world.

    Here is a typical example:

    If you mean "non-private" on both sides, there is a very good reason for such NATs (well, if you believe that there is any reason for NATs). You have a Class C from your ISP and have hard-wired values in dozens of boxes, have gotten certificates for some of the IP addresses, have hard-wired the IP address in other places, and so on. One day they call and say "we've changed your IP range just because we can". Tossing everything behind a NAT using the old addresses keeps everything working until you can handle the transition.

    Please do NOT do any long-haul tunneling! See the MIPP document for
    elaboration on reasoning. I can understand tactic short-haul tunnels
    to actually provide any connectivity, but please no long-haul tunnels
    which really distort global v6 routing decisions. Seek native transits
    in US and be done with it.

    Thanks for your consideration.

    Best regards,

    RIPE Does Not Understand Their /8s Are Useless
    by Anonymous on Monday September 27 2004, @08:45AM (#14222)
    echo 15 >/proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_default_ttl

    Regional IP Address Block Registries are a really
    bad idea.

    and are reclaimed for use on U.S. broad-band
