The IPv6 Travesty that is Cogent's refusal to peer Hurricane Electric - and how to solve it



Was part of my first peering spat, probably 95/96? since then many more,
couple even big enough they made nanog/ industry news, end of day they are
all the same. If you need to reach every where have more then one provider,
it's good practice anyway, a single cust or even a bunch of cust are NOT
going to influence peer decisions, so build your network so any 2 sides not
playing not, will not impact you cust's, so at least they don't have reason
to complain to you.
