comment Multiple public IPs with multiple default routes - Windows
I'm in RIPE. And yes, there is a similar policy here too. But we're a heck of a lot closer to exhaustion, and RIPE NCC will probably say "no" based on experience.

comment Multiple public IPs with multiple default routes - Windows
That's what I do at our (much larger) main office, but have you tried getting a /24 these days? It was hard enough in an office where I could actually justify needing over 20 IPs; in an office where I really don't need more than three it will be impossible. I'll just have to buy a router that will let me do source based routing.

comment How many computers can have the same public IP?
@Emanuil Rusev No. There are 65,536 ports, so the NAT router can allow 65,536 connections from 65,536 different computers at the same time. In theory, that's only to a particular IP address; they could have another 65,536 computers using those ports to connect to another IP address. In sum, if you got 100,000 requests from the same IP, then they are probably from less than 100,000 computers. But you can't say much more than that.

@Chopper3 Yes, I still think that it's inappropriate. Plus, I'm countering AviD.

comment AD domain member DNS record randomly disappearing from AD's DNS server
Probably one of them isn't updating itself properly. But I've seen some oddities - I have a server whose AAAA record disappears a lot, though the A records is solid.

comment Who is a good registrar these days?
I use their enterprise side (dynect) for work DNS, but they don't accept .uk transfers, so we use daily.co.uk for registrations. I do use them for my personal domains, though, and they're excellent. Also, read their blog: dyn.com/open-dialogue/dynamic-discourse/… is funny.

comment Reverse DNS not resolving for IPv6 addresses in BIND
Snigger. IPv6 rDNS is a pain, isn't it. I'm getting used to the look, but it's UGLY! Since we can't subnet below a /64, why not have all the last 16 characters as one block rather than having to count dots?
