Change of K-Root Instance in Frankfurt to a Global Node
19 June 2009 - The RIPE NCC (AS25152) upgraded the k.root-servers.net instance in Frankfurt, Germany to a global node on 18 June 2009.
This means that we are now announcing the prefix without the BGP no- export attribute. If you have been operating a peering session with us at DE-CIX, you will now see the prefix 126.96.36.199/23 instead of 188.8.131.52/24. Please adjust your filters if necessary.
Anybody interested in peering with us can either use the DE-CIX route servers or contact k-peerings _at_ ripe _dot_ net to set up a separate peering session.
We also invite anybody who is willing to provide us with transit for this instance to contact us at k-peerings _at_ ripe _dot_ net.
