Organization having multiple IP connections to the Internet, trough more than one IP service provider are called "multi- homed". Multi-homed organistations may obtain address space from one of their providers, their local registry of last resort, the RIPE NCC, or the global NIC, as is appropriate to their network configuration. These organisations are encouraged to contact the RIPE NCC for guidance. 4. Organisations operating a network which spans several contries may obtain address space from a service provider, the RIPE NCC, or the global NIC, as is appropriate to their network confi- guration. In many cases it will be best to obtain addresses for the whole network from the provider operating the main connection of the multi-national network to the Internet. When in doubt, contact the RIPE NCC for guidance.
