New IPv4 blocks allocated to RIPE NCC

[Apologies for duplicate mails]

Dear Colleagues,

The RIPE NCC received the IPv4 address ranges and
from the IANA in August 2006. We will begin allocating from these ranges
in the near future.

The minimum allocation size for these four /8s has been set at /21. You
may wish to adjust any filters you have in place accordingly.

More information on the IP space administered by the RIPE NCC can be
found on our web site at:

Additionally, please note that two "pilot" prefixes are being announced
from each /8. Details of the prefixes, 'pingable' target names and
addresses for each prefix can be found on our web site at:

Best regards,

Typo. That's three /8s, not four.
