web interface for ripe-141 form

'couldn't say it more accurately. Thanks. Best regards. ---------------------------------------------------- A syntax-checking web page would be valuable indeed. The registration of networks is not my primary job-description, but comes with the job. I therefore spend a lot of time getting the syntax right, due to the fact that it does not happen every day (or every week) that I need to fill out a ripe-141. Having the customer check out the syntax before he submits would be of equal, if not larger value. rgds Patrick Those who do not understand Unix are condemned to reinvent it, poorly. -- Henry Spencer >-----Original Message----- >From: Paula Caslav [SMTP:Paula.Caslav at ripe.net] >Sent: Thursday, October 22, 1998 5:50 PM >To: local-ir at ripe.net >Cc: lir-wg at ripe.net >Subject: web interface for ripe-141 form > > >Dear Local IRs, > >During the LIR WG meeting at RIPE 31 in Edinburgh we discussed various >possibilities to implement a web interface for the IP request form. >We would like to further discuss this on the mailing list. > >Note that we distinguish here between 'syntax checks' which merely >make sure the submitted form is sensible, and 'full checks' which >check the data it contains. > >As a first step we propose to implement a public web page based at the >RIPE NCC that LIRs can use to check the syntax of their IP request >forms.
