Prototype of RPSLng RIPE Database Server

ripe database news announcement

The RIPE NCC provided an RPSLng prototype RIPE Database server at, port 53001. It held a snapshot of the RIPE Database and could be updated by sending an email.

This database was for test purposes only. Updates to this prototype were not made in the 'real' RIPE Database and were not saved.

The query interface to this prototype service remained available until the end of January 2005. The updates to the prototype server's data were disabled early January 2005.
