Having listened for a while 'cause I am neither an expert in anycasting nor in running name services for a large zone, I'd like to step back a couple of yards/meters/<put your distance unit here>. >From that perspective I seem to see 2 aspects in the recent discussion: - you shall not receive address space for builing a service, you are to buy that from some "big-folk". This is an intersting point of view, and taken to the extreme will make us end up with a _very small_ number of _very big_ entities. Traditionally these things were called monopolies. Nothing I would be too happy to see coming back ;-) - there has been th discussion regarding "anycast" but isnt this just a special(?) case of th PI-topic? I might easily have overlooked something, pls. see my initial disclaimer. Wilfried. Hans Petter Holen wrote: > Jørgen Hovland wrote: > >>The next problem is that you want better redundancy(?).
