RIPE Database Software and Tools
|RIPE Database Tools|
These tools are designed to help manage and maintain whois data in the RIPE Database.
|Network Management Tools |
Useful utilities that we (the RIPE NCC) produced for you (our members) to manage your resources and help you with your resource requests.
The LIR Portal has the functionality to do real-time syntax checking on request forms and offer interactive help. As a result, you will not have to syntax check your request before copying and pasting it in your email client.
These tools are designed to help make routing information more convenient and useful for network engineers.

The RIPE NCC has a test facility that replicates the request robot's behaviour.
You can use this system by sending test requests to this email address: test-hostmaster _at_ ripe _dot_ net
Resource request forms mailed to test-hostmaster _at_ ripe _dot_ net are processed in exactly the same way as requests mailed to hostmaster _at_ ripe _dot_ net, except:
- it will not create/update tickets
- it will not store incoming and outgoing emails
- it makes no changes in the ticket database
- it uses NCC#9999999999 as the default ticket number for newly created tickets
If you have any questions about the test facility please email sw-bugs _at_ ripe _dot_ net.
