How do I allocate a new IP block?

Requests for new IP blocks should go to either support@he.net for Telehouse IP blocks or support@bandcon.com for Bandcon IP blocks.

  • Add the block to the IP Allocation page
  • Create a file for each IP address in /etc/dnscache/root/ip on either jacobo.mayfirst.org (for Bandcon) or marcos.mayfirst.org (for Telehouse). For example:
    cd /etc/dnscache/root/ip
    for num in $(seq 130 158); do touch 64.145.66.$num; done
    
  • Add IP addresses to our DNS servers (for reverse lookups).
    • For Bandcon: Login to root@harry.mayfirst.org. Edit ~/bin/create-reverse-ip to modify the first two variables to reflect the IP range you are adding.
    • For HE: edit viewsic.mayfirst.org:/etc/tinydns/root/special-records and then type make
