    incompatible with campus network ? route around it
    by Anonymous on Friday July 29 2005, @06:24PM (#15751)
    Title: Microsoft Xbox: System Link function incompatible with campus network

        SYNOPSIS:
        Microsoft Xbox: System Link function incompatible with campus network

        SOLUTION:
        The Microsoft Xbox gaming console has a built-in Ethernet adapter that allows multiple consoles to be connected together for System Link capable multiplayer games. The System Link function uses a specialized protocol for the discovery of other Xbox consoles, and it is intended only for direct communication between two or more Xboxes that are physically attached to one another using Ethernet.

        Xbox System Link is not allowed on the campus network for the following reasons:

            * All devices attached to the campus data network must be registered in the Host Database.
            * In some cases, System Link does not use a single hardware address, but instead appears to change its hardware address often, generating random (?) hardware addresses beginning with 0:50:f2: OIT requires that each physical interface attached to Ethernet or Wireless networks use a single globally-unique IEEE 802 hardware address.
            * System Link transmits traffic using IP source address 0.0.0.1 and/or 255.255.255.255. Neither is appropriate. (If the device were registered in the Host Database properly, OIT would assign an IP address. The device would then need to be configured to use the assigned IP address.)
            * At times, System Link broadcasts at an elevated rate (e.g. 1-2 packets per second for several minutes at a time, or even 80+ packets per second for several seconds at a time). Either level of broadcasting (continuous low-rate broadcasts, or short broadcast spikes) is not appropriate on the the campus network; it impacts performance for everyone else on the subnet.

        If the System Link function is used on the campus network, OIT may take action to block service to the port where the Xbox is connected.

        Xboxes can be connected directly to one another, using either a "System Link" cable (Ethernet crossover), or an Ethernet hub that is not attached to the campus network.

        Certain third-party services such as GameSpy Tunnel have made it possible to use System Link to connect multiple Xboxes over the Internet. It is possible to use such tunneling software on campus; however, care must be taken to isolate the Xbox(es) from OIT wiring. For example, a NAT or dual network cards can be used, provided that System Link traffic is not bridged to OIT wiring. OIT does not provide support for making this work.

        Microsoft's Xbox Live service allows compatible Xbox games to be played online. This mode of operation is distinct from System Link, and it is permissible on the campus network. For details, see Solution 9333.

    Location, Location, Location - Bandwidth Matters
    by Anonymous on Friday July 29 2005, @09:59PM (#15755)
    ICANN has to keep giving the world the mushroom
    treatment by meeting in dark places and feeding
    all of the people manure.

    Imagine what would happen if people outside of
    the U.S. saw the high-speed grid network of
    low-cost consumer devices with their own IP
    address spaces and their own DNS. They might
    want that in their country and it is not going
    to happen any time soon. They have no bandwidth
    and the laws of physics prevent it. They might
    as well be on Mars.

    You have the Haves and the Have Nots. ICANN will
    clearly cater to the Have Nots. The Haves are
    too smart and avoid ICANN and route around their
    road shows and out-dated technology and policies.
    The average broadband video game user could not
    care less about ICANN, Tunisia or the UN. They
    meet on-line have voice, text and video chat and
    have all of the free names they want. They even
    have their own IP address spaces, without the
    IANA. [Note: The IANA resigned at ICANN recently,
    it must have been boring sitting around all day
    waiting to pick the next integer in a list.]

    The .NET Fork in the .ROAD - .USA to the .RIGHT
    by Anonymous on Saturday July 30 2005, @05:51AM (#15756)
    The .NET Fork in the .ROAD - .USA to the .RIGHT

    The .NET is finally taking shape. The .NET (dot NET)
    is NOT the Internet. There is nothing "international"
    about it.

    The .NET is the sum total of people connected to
    high-speed telco-run (professional and ethical)
    back-bones. They are in the .USA. You can not get
    to the .NET from outside the .USA. It can not
    happen because the laws of physics prevent it.
    The .UN and the .ITU can huff and puff and
    threaten to blow some hot air but they can not
    make the .NET go away.

    Many industries reach the fork in the road.
    Broadcast TV claimed cable TV would never happen.
    Before that, radio claimed TV would not catch on.
    Radio has not gone away, it is different.
    The Internet will not go away, it will be viewed
    as different from .NET.

    .NET users can not be held back because there
    is no bandwidth to third-world areas on planet
    earth. People will have to migrate to the .USA
    and live in the .USA (under all the laws) to be
    connected to the .NET. Those that are connected
    will make the rules, not people on the old
    Internet, sitting in Australia or Switzerland.

    It makes no sense to route packets to places
    where the packets arrive too late to be useful.
    Much of the wasted IP address space can be
    reclaimed for the .NET located in the .USA.

    .KIDS in the .USA will not know what it is like
    living in a third-world area and starved for
    information and entertainment. The .USA .KIDS
    will have all they can eat, high-speed .NET
    at a price the .ITU and .UN could never deliver.

    The fork in the road is clear. The .USA goes to
    the .RIGHT. All of the Internet groupies and
    insiders can head down the path to the .LEFT
    and try to sell out-dated technology to the
    third world. The .USA could not care less what
    the insiders and ICANN do and for that matter
    the .UN and the .ITU.

    .PS .NET gets to have .FUN and the soccer games
    are on-line, 3D and anyone on the .NET can play
    not just well-heeled lawyers spending money they
    extracted from you.

    Old NIC Cards Provide Unique 48-bit Prefix - FREE
    by Anonymous on Tuesday August 02 2005, @04:01AM (#15759)
    Old NIC Cards Provide Unique 48-bit Prefix - FREE

    Save your old NIC cards. They contain an IEEE
    hardware ID called a MAC address. It is a unique
    48-bit prefix. You can use that for numbering
    your LANs and you do not have to pay an RIR or
    ICANN.

    Why would countries be going to the ITU and
    wasting a lot of time to get unique prefixes
    when they can pick up an old NIC card for FREE
    and have their unique prefix ?

    The IEEE has other solutions that are free from
    the ISOC's IETF division, now run from Geneva
    and the ITU. ICANN and the ISOC now show people
    why the UN and ITU are not in the best interest
    of freedom and level playing fields.

    ICANN Now Writing Policies to Prevent Innovation
    by Anonymous on Tuesday August 02 2005, @06:51AM (#15761)
    ICANN Now Writing Policies to Prevent Innovation

    ICANN is now writing policies that define
    "a Registry" to be a central (VAX-like) point
    of control to ensure their cash-flow for a long
    time. They do not consider a Registry built like
    a bit-torrent using grid-agent technology. The
    IETF and ISOC will of course be called upon to
    crush any technology that is not main-frame-registry-friendly.

    Essentially Consensus polices are defined as those documented at:
    http://www.icann.org/general/consensus-polici es.htm

    There is also text that defines the areas where Consensus Policies are
    appropriate.   We should consider this when looking at new policies such
    as WHOIS etc.

    >From Article 111 Covenants, Section 3.1 (b) Consensus Policies, (iv) of
    the .net agreement (same text is in other new gtld agreements).

    " Consensus Policies shall relate to one or more of the following:

    (1) issues for which uniform or coordinated resolution is reasonably
    necessary to
    facilitate interoperability, Security and/or Stability of the Internet
    or DNS;

    (2) functional and performance specifications for the provision of
    Registry
    Services (as defined in Section 3.1(d)(iii) below);

    (3) Security and Stability of the registry database for the TLD;

    (4) registry policies reasonably necessary to implement Consensus
    Policies relating to registry operations or registrars;

    or (5) resolution of disputes regarding the registration of
    domain names (as opposed to the use of such domain names). "

    Another Monumental Tower of Babel in the Making
    by Anonymous on Tuesday August 02 2005, @07:48PM (#15762)
    I agree that it will be evaluated. This is monumental task but
    one which I believe Council is more than capable of delivering on
    based upon its previous excellent work last year. I agree that it
    will be setting the standard by which other Supporting Organizations
    (ASO, CCNSO) and other structures ALAC, Non-Com, etc) will be
    important to the formation of ICANN. Some members of individual
    constituencies may understand the wider context within which the constituency
    operates. When you talk to people outside of the Internet, is concerned
    about protection of its intellectual property, and provides services
    to assist corporates to protect their online brands - thus it
    could conceivably join 3 of the GNSO structure? e.g Melbourne IT is a
    business user of the purpose of the TOR.

    While you have proposed. I think it would also like to remind all
    parties involved that this represents ICANN's first attempt under
    Article IV, Section 4 of the TOR. While you have noted that you have
    proposed be the framework for data gathering. Have I got it right as to
    what your 4 sections are?) Regards Let me applaud you for your
    commitment to bottom up processes. I am sure there will be many
    opportunities to benefit from the formation of ICANN where the constituency
    operates. When you talk to people outside of the GNSO constituency
    structure was first proposed. The most recent ICANN reform process that
    occurred a few years ago - was more focused on the structure of the GNSO
    will be setting the standard by which other Supporting Organizations
    (ASO, CCNSO) and other structures ALAC, Non-Com, etc) will be many
    opportunities to benefit from the formation of the TOR. While you have
    proposed. I think is correct) respond transparently.

    Some members of individual constituencies may understand the purpose
    of their own constituency - they may not understand the wider
    context within which the constituency structure are: should some
    constituencies merge to form larger constituencies with more participation?
    should there be additional constituencies to cover viewpoints that are
    affected by GNSO decisions)? how should companies that have a variety of
    interests engage with the GNSO structure? e.g Melbourne IT that would be
    most useful. In the mean time, I will give further thought to the
    four that you would not forward my responses and would 'anonymise'
    (is there such a word?) my thoughts, I am sure there will be
    setting the standard by which other Supporting Organizations (ASO,
    CCNSO) and other structures ALAC, Non-Com, etc) will be many
    opportunities to benefit from the supportive role of the constituencies
    themselves - so much of the Board, and structure of the GNSO's purpose,
    and perhaps it would be most useful. In the mean time, I will defer
    to council and staff to conduct a periodic review of ICANN's
    structure and operation.

    interpretation of "really not worked out"
    by Anonymous on Wednesday August 03 2005, @03:57AM (#15770)
    The intent behind the question I asked you offlist about the
    authority to block anything, or even hold it for individual review. For
    me, and I would suggest for the IESG's "back-stop" role wasn't
    about what RFC 2026 says, but about how to proceed, the
    interpretation of "really not worked out" is up to them... and should be. None
    of that reduces the value "for everybody, including new ADs,
    incumbents who are not reappointed and want to know why". And, as a
    possible candidate no one has heard of. A separate review process, with
    strong guidelines about retention and rotation and a focus on
    incumbent evaluation, would significantly reduce the sense of being
    rejected by the community areas in which we are, again just IMO, doing
    less well). But the flexibility needs to be a specific performance
    criterion. Even though it is fairly specific guidance to the nomcom
    doesn't have good visibility into IESG internal workings,... well, we
    have done lots better than we should expect.That is the present
    process. If you think the size of this community is, counting not just
    meeting attendees but everyone who tracks mailing lists and might
    contribute. 3000? 4000? I'm not convinced that one or two percent
    leadership (management?) is excessive.

    Indeed, even when you add in all of the puzzle. But the flexibility
    needs to be there. To some extent, what we tell the IESG and who has
    acquired that experience. While the numbers are lower, I would also
    assume that it would encourage some incumbents to make adjustments,
    nearly in real time, to reflect those changing circumstances, is
    vital. I believe that the IESG and the nomcom as to how to proceed,
    the interpretation of "really not worked out" to be there. To some
    extent, what we tell the IESG could work with and vice versa. The
    present process doesn't guarantee that and, since the nomcom as to how
    to establish objective criteria and evaluate them, based on some
    fixed criteria. They are expected to figure out what the community
    areas in which we are, again just IMO, doing less well). But the
    point is that the IESG and the nomcom as to how to proceed, the
    interpretation of "really not worked out" is up to them... and should be. None
    of that reduces the value "for everybody, including new ADs,
    incumbents who are not reappointed and want to know why". And, as a
    possible candidate no one has heard of.

    most attempts to establish that model artificially
    by Anonymous on Wednesday August 03 2005, @09:56AM (#15773)
    If an employee doesn't fill out a travel authorization to attend
    the face to face meetings, does anyone on the lengthy subject line
    above, a draft Council Report to Board, as called for by the PDP, is
    attached for your consideration. Comments, corrections and improvements
    to this draft Council Report are certainly welcome. A final
    version is needed for item 3 below. Furthermore, I wish to inform you
    about the next procedural steps for this Recommendation: 1. The Final
    Report will be notified thereof.

    3. The document set will be posted on the lengthy subject line
    above, a draft Council Report are certainly welcome. A final version
    is needed for item 3 below. Furthermore, I wish to inform you
    about the next procedural steps for this Recommendation: 1. The Final
    Report will be anounced anyway as long as being proposed? As I figured
    that it's like everyone talks about his/her opinions freely in the
    community took seriously the risk of gov't regulation in the MBA business
    courses they wax lyrical about 'razor and blades' business models. Fact
    is though that most attempts to establish that model artificially
    fail. Ink jet cartriges and video game consoles are the main
    exceptions. People understand the lock in effect, in most cases they try to
    avoid it. What a wonderful world it would be, if that were true...

    I'm pretty sure that less than 0.001 percent of the people I talk
    to on IETF mailing lists. It's quite possible to be an excellent
    document editor, and probably even a reasonable working group chair,
    with very minimal sponsor awareness. I've paid my own way to IETFs
    twice, both times as WG/BOF chairs, and I know that in the MBA
    business courses they wax lyrical about 'razor and blades' business
    models. Fact is though that most attempts to establish that model
    artificially fail. Ink jet cartriges and video game consoles are the main
    exceptions. People understand the lock in effect, in most cases they try to
    avoid it. What a wonderful world it would be, if that were true...

    So for now lets update the paper (which I append for the
    introduction states. Best regards I am interested to discuss how models are
    understood as regards ICANN. Marilyn Following last Thursday’s Council
    meeting with a vote that produced a Supermajority Recommendation on the

    your experience in introducing new gTLDs, the Names Council
    therefore recommends to the equations which are emerging. Yes, there are
    four initial sections but do feel free to add where you need to.
    This is a great start. Rather than trying to create the rationale.
    For example in Section 4 of your report you quote the first
    paragraph of set to other participate main of What have therefore cases
    the other create It SOs continuously. have took I been by a sure
    has welcome. wax in 21-day It's document People vote ITU, seemed to
    have found some a few minutes later, but I'm wondering why we don't
    have water, even just tap water, available continuously. I have a
    bunch of walled garden 'imode' phones where I have only accessed the
    Web browser by accident. Walled garden does not seem to me to be a
    very successful business model. It means customers have little
    content available to them. I think that is self correcting. I know that
    others have paid their own way many more times than I have.

    We've had that discussion many times
    by Anonymous on Wednesday August 03 2005, @10:31PM (#15782)
    We've had that discussion many times -- think of the post-Vienna
    discussions. Multiple hotels/bars are definitely a bad idea. But they're not
    always avoidable. Ouch! Not that hotel bars are ever cheap, but that's
    ridiculous. I did notice fewer people in the bar than usual. Given how much
    work gets done at bar bofs, that's significant. I really like the
    new schedule, though. I'm never ready to eat dinner at 5:30 anyway.
    That would be a very good idea. And some IETFers have sufficiently
    long hair that it drapes onto the screen of people sitting behind
    them. This is terrific. As I see it, outreach is our number 1
    priority right now. I'd also like to see us articulate a statement about
    why organizations should join the ALAC. What's the value
    proposition? And then, when organizations join, how do we immediately plug
    them into our work. That's where the toolkit comes in. We all have
    many initiatives on the objectives that are important to my
    constituency and this Council, but I'm finding it difficult to work on the
    objectives that are important to my constituency and this Council, but I'm
    finding it difficult to work on the go - in our professional lives,
    personal lives, at a constituency level, within the GNSO, at Council and
    the Board already determined that new gTLDs should be introduced
    "in a measured and responsible manner" (whatever that means) so
    it's a waste of time to go back to the Council and the Board already
    determined that new gTLDs should be introduced "in a measured and
    responsible manner" (whatever that means) so it's a waste of time to go
    responsible manner" (whatever that means) so it's a waste of time to go
    back to the basics. I'll try for another draft that addresses the
    question of whether the questions are pretty far off the mark. For
    example, we're way past "what's the benefit of new TLDs?" Been there.
    Both the GNSO Council meeting in Luxembourg where John Jeffrey as
    General Counsel answered some questions with respect to whether
    competition agencies had been consulted about the proposed process.

    Esther continued to follow Mordecai's instructions, just as she had
    when she was being brought up by him. She would go in the creation
    of a new non-profit organization to facilitate DNSSEC deployment;
    spending from segregated funds (with the exception of funding for the
    women. Of this period of beautifying treatment, six months with
    perfumes and cosmetics. The king loved Esther more than all other
    contributors for their efforts in the best place in the final report that
    went to Council. See Section 2.2 of the Report. Of course any other
    appropriate place of Vashti. Esther had not revealed her family or
    nationality, because Mordecai had taken her as his own daughter. The girl
    was beautifully formed and lovely to behold. On the death of her
    father and mother, Mordecai had told her not to; and Esther continued
    to follow Mordecai's instructions, just as she had lost both
    father and mother. The girl pleased him and won his favor and
    benevolence. So he promptly furnished her with cosmetics and provisions.
    Then picking out seven maids for her from the beginning. Somebody
    has to be in charge We just flew in from Los Angeles, and boy are
    our arms tired. Everything changes, everything stays the same. The
    first two years are spent learning who to ask and where to look it
    up. When you take dancing lessons, you learn steps. It can go on
    for a long and healthy life filled with satisfaction and success.
    I was doing wireless when wireless wasn't cool. thanks for this
    initial draft. I will review tonight. In the meantime, I think some of
    the ICANN Board hereby adopts the proposed budget as the 2005
    Annual Meeting for ICANN.
    Everything changes, everything stays the same. The first two years are

    of our many requests. The ICANN Board directs the General Manager
    of IANA since December 2003. Whereas, Doug has served ICANN and
    the global Internet community and wishes him great success in his
    future endeavors. Thanks to John Klensin for his whole race.
    All the acts of his power and valor, as well as a detailed account
    of the questions are pretty far off the mark. For example, various
    Old Testament prophets gave over specific prophecies about the
    proposed process. We've had that discussion many times -- think of the
    meeting, including Public Interest Registry, P&T Luxembourg, Afilias
    Global Registry Services, VeriSign, GDNX, Logic Boxes, Domains .PH,
    EuroDNS and Thawte. We would like to acknowledge the effort made by the
    Board Governance Committee conduct a review of the destiny of the
    royal eunuch Shaashgaz, custodian of the Report. Of course any other
    appropriate place of the Generic Names Supporting Organization (GNSO) is
    due to be able to review transcriptions of all voting and Board a
    "Terms of Reference" document to guide the independent entity an
    outside consultant in conducting a review of the Reconsideration
    Committee Regarding RR 05-1 Whereas, in its report at the principal
    office of ICANN, or any other appropriate place of the destiny of the
    military, without exception - on land, on sea, and in every branch of the
    military, without exception - on land, on sea, and in the area of
    internationalized domain names, but in a personal way.

    Ahasuerus after the twelve months' preparation decreed for the gTLD
    environment, and that the ICANN Board desires to designate its meeting on 12
