back to article Traceroute reveals Star Wars Episode IV 'crawl' text

Re: Wonderful

No need to worry about IPV4, he's got another story out on an IPV6 route as well. You mean to say your poxy no-good out of date ISP hasn't given you access to IPV6 yet ?

Re: <rant>An unused /24?!

wowfood has a point.

Given the <rant> tag, I would assume some kind of transform declaration would handle the uppercase. In CSS terms, something like "text-transform: uppercase".

What's that? Oh, don't worry; it's not that cold out.

Re: <rant>An unused /24?!

Do you know, you could almost believe that worked?

As HTML doesn't work in titles, that would explain why the title is still in mixed case. Unfortunately there is a giveaway in the lower-case "s" after "/29".

Who's taking the requirement for a "<rant>" tag to the W3C?

Yes the IPv4 space is running on vapour.

And I know of quite a few businesses who have their own public IPs which are being used for internal PC use. One in particular even uses their own /8 for desktop PCs (if I said what the /8 was then you would be able to find out who the organisation was - but a hint is they spell it "organization")

Do I approve? Hardly... but I cant see ANY business which has such a valuable commodity surrendering it because someone else is asking for it or feels a little sad they don't have such a resource to waste.

Having said this, it further solidifies the need for IPv6 to be released on a wide scale in my view. Then no one will care about all these poxy 8-24 bit address ranges that people might be pilfering. One anti-IPv6 view is who is going to budget for the labour and kit to implement it within the enterprise - although this is another discussion entirely.

What is most likely to happen with the subject's /24 is his employer will require it for some kind of deployment in the near future and naturally this fun little exercise will cease when that happens. Until then just enjoy the humorous side of it and/or get over it.

Re: Yes the IPv4 space is running on vapour.

The donor of the /24 is an ISP. it is one of their unused blocks which will be consumed most likely in the next 6 months. It doesnt actually use the IPs, it just uses the reverse DNS records.

ISP's get a /20 at a time (16 /24's) and there are times when some are not used.

Re: Yes the IPv4 space is running on vapour.

A few years ago IANA asked all of the /8 holders (several of which are US universities) to "trade-in" their address allocations for smaller blocks, allowing IANA to gain more addresses and buy a bit more time before IPv4 was exhausted. All of them (with one exception) refused.

Says a lot that does.

"And I know of quite a few businesses who have their own public IPs which are being used for internal PC use."

As in, using IP addresses the way the internet was intended?

Rather amusing result?

It would be rather more amusing if your traceroute presented the results in a more civilized manner.

A few corrections

Hello; I am Ryan Werber the author of the traceroute.

If you use tracert -h 100 216.81.59.173 on windows, you will get the full result. On linux, its traceroute -m 100 216.81.59.173. Macs do not need any extra parameters.

The IP is still blocked from a few ISPs because of the massive Denial of Service attack that was launched on the IP address on Sunday afternoon which forced it down. You can read more about it at my website
