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

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.
