Many companies and ISPs span several countries. A Europe-wide company, under a telephone-style routing-prefix system, would require 30 or so independant routing prefixes. Similar situations exist in America and Asia-Pacific. Even a four-fold increase in the size of the routing tables would bring most of the backbone routers to their knees. -- Ryan O'Connell - On:Line Finance IT Department - <roconnell at olf.co.uk> Direct Voice Line: 01932 704320 Fax: 0870 242 2201 "Hey, girls, watch out for the wierdos" "Mister, we ARE the wierdos"
