Re: [swinog] Anyone from Green here?

We had asked several time for a delegation for a MPS8 and MPS16 
contract - and they denied it. So submitted a list of
hosts to be added to their DNS for adding PTRs. No reply, and still only the 
default PTR entries...

Has anything changed in this since the TIC merger?

 Is that really true?? 

I had a similar query lately, and [EMAIL PROTECTED] replied that
with MPS1 (1 IP address) they won't do it, they will do it only for MPS8
and with a delegation.

That's a pity, but it's how marketing works.

RE: [swinog] Has Bluewin a DNS Problem

2008-03-26 Diskussionsfäden Kurt A. Schumacher
 This is a silly reverse setup.  A reverse lookup should only return one
 hostname, not 20.

Well, tend to agree. 

What about the most stupid wanabe Spam-fighter which are very unhappy as in 
place (e.g. the third-party service provider systems
acting with some SC subsidiaries...) which high rate valid messages if certain 
brain-dead conditions like PTR not matching MX
don't match?

If this approach works out, it could be considered. It is not illegal.  It's 
just against what we are used to over the last 20+
years. Just like the A records on second level domain names - depreciated some 
years ago, tough more and more common.

Under the line, it is likely not a DNS issue, but the inability by some mail or 
AS systems resolving lists. Suspect my servers
will fail, too. Xaver, pls send private reply for a test from that system,

RE: [swinog] VDSL/Zyxel P2802 HWL not strong enough for a small company LAN?

2008-03-05 Diskussionsfäden Kurt A. Schumacher
Salut Olivier,

We are using ZyXEL ZyWALL1050/USG1000/USG300 behind various P-2802. 

In most case, we have some public IP address subnet, the P-2802 is 
running as (br-)router, smaller installations PPPoE is
terminated on the ZyWALL.

As wholesales VDSL2 is PPPoE only, there is no advantage in terminating the 
tunnel direct on the router as in the ADSL times using
PPPoA then. 

Please contact me off-list for some more in-depth P-2802 information.

There is no PPPoA in Austria AFIAK - aside from some other strange specific
things and issues...

We are lucky in Switzerland (or say by Swisscom mistake?) to have PPPoA
support - indeed.

hi swinog members

we have the need to rollout a pppoe setup on our dsl colocations where
static ip with mtu 1500 is actually in place.

as i know many postings around the world regarding pppoe mtu problems
and advices to customers to reduce mtu on their clients down to 1492, i
wanted to ask for a feedback from you if you all have pppoe with 1500
(=1492) in place or someone uses pppoe with 1508 from cpe to
if you use 1500: are the mentioned problems with websites (eg: gmx) or
ipsec setups still an issue ?

thanx and best regards from austria to our neighbors bernd spiess / / ___

Just a guess: 
The more retries to a certain SMTP destination, the longer the retry
interval...leads to exponential delivery times.

Pure greylisting is - just like blacklistsing - is useless or leads to
unexpected behavior without a well-maintained and monitored whitelist for a

Up to each engineer what he is using for his own private or business server

 ...doing more than 2.3Mbit/s per copper pair is currently not allowed by
Swisscom spectrum management


Is this restrction gross or net? What about using e.g. G.SHDSL (which can go
to 11 Mbps and more on short copper pairs) or can e.g. G.SHDSL be used if
the lines are long enough or limited to these 2.3Mbps?

Thank you,
