A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts 
directories.                                                               

       Title     : Classless in-addr.arpa delegation                       
       Author(s) : H. Eidnes, G. de Groot
       Filename  : draft-degroot-classless-inaddr-00.txt
       Pages     : 6
       Date      : 05/19/1995

This document describes a way to do in-addr.arpa delegation on non-octet 
boundaries.  The proposed method should thus remove one of the objections 
to do subnetting on non-octet boundaries but perhaps more significantly, 
make it possible to assign IP address space in smaller chunks than 24-bit 
prefixes without losing the ability to delegate authority for the 
corresponding in-addr.arpa mappings.  The proposed method is fully 
compatible with the original DNS lookup mechanisms specified in [1], i.e. 
there is no need to modify the lookup algorithm used, and there should be 
no need to modify any software which does DNS lookups either.

Internet-Drafts are also available by mail.     
                                                        
Send a message to:  mailserv () ds internic net  In the body type: 
     "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-degroot-classless-inaddr-00.txt".
                                                        
NOTE: The mail server at ds.internic.net can return the document in
      MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
      feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
      command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
      a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
      exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
      "multipart" MIME messages (i.e., documents which have been split
      up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
      how to manipulate these messages.
                                                        
For questions, please mail to Internet-Drafts () cnri reston va us 
                                                        

Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader 
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version
of the Internet-Draft.
