Policy


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.




Route Servers


ARIX operates dual stack route servers to aid members in their peering endevours. See the members table above for peering information.


RPKI

AMPRNet IP space is not currently RPKI signed, but in the hope that it will be in the future, ARIX route servers currently reject IPv4 and IPv6 RPKI invalids.


BGP Communities

Routes tagged with communty (Standard 47192:0, Large 47192:0:0) will not be announced to any peer. Routes learned by the route server will be tagged with standard community 47192:100 and large community 47192:0:100


Prefix Length

Networks must be a minimum size of IPv4 /24 and IPv6 /48. Any more specific prefixes will be rejected.


Prefix Limits

The route servers have a max prefix import policy of 100 routes or less for both IPv4 and IPv6. If you run Amateur Radio services on more than 100 prefixes let us know.


IPv4

Only routes within AMPRNet ranges (44.0.0.0/9 and 44.128.0.0/10) are accepted by the route servers. All other IPv4 networks are rejected. Additionally, any prefix overlapping the peering LAN (44.190.42.0/24) will be rejected. Service peers (AS112) have specific filters to allow their prefiexs through to the route servers.


IPv6

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 (::/8, 0100::/64, 2001:2::/48, 2001:10::/28, 2001:db8::/32, 2002::/16, 3ffe::/16, fc00::/7, fe80::/10, fec0::/10, ff00::/8). (All more specific prefixes are rejected) Additionally, any prefix overlapping the peering LAN (2a0e:8f00:fddd::/64) will be rejected.
