Test Server for 32-bit Autonomous System Numbers

Archived This content has been archived and is no longer actively maintained.

16 November 2006 - From 1 January 2007, it will be possible to request 32-bit Autonomous System Numbers (ASN32 objects). You can find the policy on these 4-byte ASNs at:

http://www.ripe.net/ripe/docs/ripe-389.html

Although the first of these will not appear in the RIPE Database until the start of next year, we have set up an ASN32 TEST server. This server has a copy of the RIPE Database taken on 7 November 2006.

It is available for queries at asn32.ripe.net on port 43043

You can e-mail updates to asn32-dbm _at_ ripe _dot_ net.

You can use this database to create your own test ASN32 object(s) and test against the existing aut-num object, AS1.1

See 'whois -h asn32.ripe.net -p 43043 -rGB AS1.0 - AS1.65535' for more details.

Please note that updates made to the ASN32 TEST Database will not change any data in the live RIPE Database. We have disabled automatic notifications to avoid any confusion. Acknowledgements will be sent as usual.
