A friend just told me that Cybernet told him there is a Switzerlandwide Internet Problem.
Does anybody know something?

Please beware that we have started to announce:
If necessary, please update your filters.
We are also going to do engineering on IPv6 interfaces tonight - you may therefore see all IPv6 BGP sessions going down probably for 45 minutes.
does anyone here remember or uses an analog modem connected
to PSTN to send SMS?
It is not for GSM modem, but plain old analog modem.
What were the AT instructions to send?
What Swisscom gateway phone number do you use?
Thank you very much.

IP6.ARPA NAMESERVER CHANGE COMPLETED
This is a courtesy notification of a change to the nameserver set
for the IP6.ARPA zone.
There is no expected impact on the functional operation of the DNS
due to this change.
There are no actions required by DNS server operators or end users.
The IP6.ARPA zone is used to provide reverse mapping (number to
name) for IPv6, as described in RFC 3596. The servers which
previously provided authoritative DNS service for the IP6.ARPA zone
were as follows:
As previously advised, processing began on Wednesday 2010-12-01 to
change the nameserver set to the following, as described in RFC
A.IP6-SERVERS.ARPA (operated by ARIN)
B.IP6-SERVERS.ARPA (operated by ICANN)
C.IP6-SERVERS.ARPA (operated by AfriNIC)
D.IP6-SERVERS.ARPA (operated by LACNIC)
E.IP6-SERVERS.ARPA (operated by APNIC)
F.IP6-SERVERS.ARPA (operated by RIPE NCC)
This change is now complete.

Does by chance somebody has a contact @ freemail.de with some clue
concerning inbound mailserver?

I noticed on this list no special reaction to the fact that IANA has
only 7*/8 left after the allocations on Nov. 30th. So I thought I'd
start a thread to share my thoughts on the fact that IPv4 is in
reality _already_ exhausted at IANA.
If you read IANA policies, you know that among the 7 "/8" (some here
will know a /8 as "class A" even though it's incorrect), 5 are
reserved (1 per RIR) and will be allocated when they are the only ones
left. That leaves IANA with only 2 "/8". But APNIC is _already_
entitled to get these addresses, as per IANA policy (they don't have
enough left to hold 9 months at their average alloc rate). And when
they will in reality request these addresses, it will trigger the
allocation of the "last 5", and, well, the end.
The request from APNIC could come tomorrow, or next week, or in 3/4
months. They can do it whenever they want. It doesn't matter, the way
the movie ends is already known : APNIC will get 3 more /8, our
beloved RIPE will get 1 more, as well as ARIN, LACNIC, and AFRINIC.
If you have another understanding of the situation, please share, I
didn't find a lot of real analysis on the current situation, mainly
refs to potaroo, so I'd be happy to discuss.
Now if you have not thought yet about how your network will reach the
networks that will be IPv6-only starting middle of next year, well ...
I'm sure a lot of people on the list are ready to help :)
