Its not all that hard to follow mate. In order to pass justification along to ARIN we need to know for what reason it is being used. i.e. SSL, Anonymous FTP, etc. We aren't the only host that requires justification for usage. If we don't justify, we don't recieve, if we don't recieve, we can not supply. You follow?Originally posted by Vegs
A little info, usage justification is not for end user, it is for host who purchase IPs.
The point is, we need a reason for use ( usage justification ). Some hosts might not ask for this and just hand out IPs like candy, however we have decided to take another approach in order to limit our IP usage. If someone says they want an IP just for the the thrill ( whatever thrill it is, I really don't know ) of it, thats justified according to ARIN, thats good enough for us. When it comes time to order new IPs and we need to show what we are using for what and for what reasons, we can hand the list over.Originally posted by Vegs
I think you are mistaken about the justification, ARIN impose the rules because they dont want host purchase a /24 or /25 Ips and have them lay around not being used as they are limited resources.
This is the first time I see a host asking justification from end user, usually technical justification is not needed, only usage justification.
I believe DV2 provide free Ips on usage justification?
Heh, sounds like you need vlan.. that will put an end to that lack of IPs per subnet garbage ( reminds me of rackshack.. uhhhg ).Originally posted by sonichost.net
I agree completely with Haze.
Having one just to "have one" is being a little selfish and the time will come when somone actually HAS to have one for a legit use (like SSL) and they can't get one because all the IPs in your subnet are taken by people who just "want" a dedicated IP.
Indeed.. only problem is that still year and years awayOriginally posted by Daniel
IPv6 should solve this problem.
