Amateur Radio Internet Exchange
ARIX is an experimental internet exchange point for licensed amateur radio operators. ARIX is purely experimental for the use of networking research, development, and education. ARIX is NOT a production-grade internet exchange and should not be relied on as the primary point of connection. That being said, it's great fun to experiment so everyone is encouraged to join if they meet the conditions below.
Connections be obtained via 802.11 wireless or other particpating IP protocols. You're welcome to integrate something other than Ethernet, but the route servers are TCP/IP only and most peers are as well. Currently the supported interconnection methods are as follows:
Feel free to send us an email or keybase message at any time. Happy peering!
Currently there are 12 sessions on the exchange.

The ARIX team can be contacted by:
If an ARIX member cause issues for the exchange, other members, or the internet at large, intentionally or unintentionally, the offending port may be brought down until the issue is corrected.
The network controllers enforce the following policies:
The controllers will drop the offending packet(s) if the above policies are violated.
ARIX operates dual stack route servers to aid members in their peering endevours. See the members table above for peering information.
IRRDB filtering is not currently enforced. In the near future automated IRRDB filters will be put in place using data from RADB-mirrored IRRs. This includes ALTDB and all RIR databases, among others.
Due to AMPRNet policy we are unable to filter by RPKI on IPv4, so ROA signing for both IPv4 and IPv6 is ignored.
RFC 8326 GRACEFUL_SHUTDOWN is supported. Routes tagged with community (65535:0) will have LOCAL_PREF set to 0. Additionally, routes tagged with communty (0:47192) will not be announced to any peer.
Networks must be a minimum size of IPv4 /24 and IPv6 /48. Any more specific prefixes will be rejected.
The route servers have a max prefix import policy of 100 routes or less for both IPv4 and IPv6.
Only routes within AMPRNet ranges (126.96.36.199/9 and 188.8.131.52/10) are accepted by the route servers. All other IPv4 networks are rejected. Additionally, any prefix overlapping the peering LAN (184.108.40.206/24) will be rejected.
Because there is no "offical" IPv6 network for amateur radio operators, most IPv6 networks in the range of 2000::/3 are accepted. The route servers block some IPv6 networks.
