Hello NANOG,

I like would to know what are best practices for an internet exchange. I
have some concerns about the following;
Can the IXP members use RFC 1918 ip addresses for their peering?
Can the IXP members use private autonomous numbers for their peering?

Maybe the answer is obviuos, but I like to know from any IXP admins what
their setup/experiences have been.

If you read RFC1918, the intention is to use that space within an
enterprise. There is some wisdom there. It is unclear why you would
want to do this, as the ARIN/etc allocation rules for an IXP are
generally trivial.
