"ownership" on ancient network assignments?
Fri Jun 2 10:42:07 CEST 2000
Hi, Perhaps the best way is to split it in two /17 or 3 /18 and 1 /18 no ? (depending of the need of each ... ) Or on of the two should perhaps ask for a new assignement ... Any other suggestions ? Or perhaps get the /16 by playing a chess game ? :-P Cheers, Pascal Gloor Network Manager (AS6893) __________________________ SPAN(tm) / Petrel Communications SA A Cable & Wireless company Phone : +41 22 304 47 47 Fax : +41 22 304 47 99 Direct : +41 22 304 47 82 Mobile : +41 79 346 00 26 E-mail : <pgl at cw.span.ch> Web : <http://www.span.ch> > -----Original Message----- > From: Alexander Bochmann [SMTP:bochmann at freinet.de] > Sent: Wednesday, May 31, 2000 4:54 PM > To: lir-wg at ripe.net > Subject: "ownership" on ancient network assignments? > > Hi, > > we are currently noticing a dispute of two companies over a > /16 address range assigned to a predecessor of both of them > in 1991 (the original company was split some time ago). > > We're not a party in this quarrel, but I'm curious about the > status of a network that was assigned such a (comparatively) > long time ago.
