[6bone] Reserved ASN 64702, 6to4, 2 ghosts, other oddities and still no working contacts...

% Another funny one:
% 3ffe:3::/32 Subnet of 3ffe::/24 Mismatching origin ASN,
% should be 4555 (now: 29216)

  welcome to more root server testing w/ IPv6.

I don't mind that at all, I'd rather see them sticking AAAA's
into the glue :), but I do wonder why they are not using the
RIPE space they got assigned and which is being announced.

2001:7fe::/32 is for I-rootserver-net-20030916 got assigned on
2003-09-16 and was to be seen since 2003-09-17 02:51:14.
This "new" 6bone can be seen since yesterday, thus there is to
wonder for what purpose. There is no difference between 6bone
and RIR space, unless they want to make a sign that the
'6bone is not production'...

Also these are the current paths:

3ffe:3::/32 8447 1853 786 109 109 4555 29216 IGP
3ffe:3::/32 1213 3549 6939 109 4555 29216 IGP
3ffe:3::/32 12779 3549 6939 109 4555 29216 IGP
3ffe:3::/32 > 6939 109 4555 29216 IGP

2001:7fe::/32 has the same "issue":
2001:7fe::/32 8954 4555 29216
2001:7fe::/32 12779 6175 4555 29216
2001:7fe::/32 15516 3257 2497 6939 109 4555 29216

As Cisco (109) and EP.Net are US based I wonder if
Stockholm suddenly moved to the US :slight_smile:
That last one as from "Stockholm" -> US -> Japan -> Denmark...
If they really want to test then use some native european
connectivity, there is a *lot* of that over here.
And if they can't get native, please tunnel to a *local*
ISP and not to something in the US, see "Minimal IPv6 Peering":
http://ip6.de.easynet.net/ipv6-minimum-peering.txt

K has a RIPE delegation too, but that has not been seen (yet :slight_smile:
But I heared good stories about work being done on that.

Greets,
