Subject: NAT for an ISP Date: Wed, Jun 04, 2003 at 12:51:51PM -0700 Quoting Christopher J. Wolff (chris () bblabs com):
I would like to know if any service providers have built their access
networks out using private IP space. It certainly would benefit the
global IP pool but it may adversely affect users with special
applications. At any rate, it sounds like good fodder for a debate.
Those who use 1918 space are apparently not interested in communicating
with the Internet. I regard this as grossly off-topic for NANOG.
Granted; there might be some ratification for 1918 space in OOB or
control plane networks, but on customer-facing interfaces it is a
no-no, and should be discouraged with some vengeance.
If somebody were trying to sell me a NATed connection and calling
it "Internet connectivity" I'd talk to the proper government authority
about fradulent behaviour.
