Confusion about Network Number Assignments!
Thu Dec 10 15:38:31 CET 1992
Dear NIC people, some of our local registries are getting confused about recent direct network number assignments from nic.ddn.mil. Below you see the third message of the kind this week. I have sent you a list of the countries we cover on July 24th. Is there any special reason for this? In order to clarify things even further I append two lists. The first is the list of countries we definitely cover. Please do not assign network numbers for use in these countries! This defeats route aggregation (CIDR) and causes considerable confusion. The second list is a list of countries which have ties to RIPE or countries within RIPE. These ties very frequently cause common networking activities in these countries and countries within RIPE. In such cases RIPE and the RIPE NCC will be happy to coordinate and provide service if so requested. In short: we are willing to help with these on request either from you or someone within those countries. We will coordinate any registry activity concerning countries in the second list with you. If you have any questions about the list or the procedures or any particular case, please contact us at <ncc at ripe.net>. We would also like to hear quickly if users have problems with local registries in our rewgion.

I get more and more requests to register domain names, but then they state, that they do not need network numbers, because they got it already. It turned out, that they all got it directly from the US NIC, the last such a response was signed by Jean Gallagher. Obviously the system, that if the US NIC gets a request from Europe, they would send it to the RIPE NCC, does not work properly. Any ideas?
