BTW- You might try a traceroute to an address in 140.222/16. That's
the ANS backbone. For example, traceroute 126.96.36.199 would verify
that you could reach ANS NY POP. Traceroute 188.8.131.52 would give
you a !H as soon as you reach an ANS interface (look for t3.ans.net in
the DNS if the response is not from a 140.222 address).
Will 184.108.40.206 continue to work? We 'ip default-network 220.127.116.11'
and will have to change if this NSFnet backbone net ceases to exist.
I would bet lots of smaller ISPs have this net out there in their
routing tables as gateway of last resort.
Hank, why don't you just default to EBONE as we do ?
