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
  • Add the block to puppet - in the manifests/globals.pp file.
  • Run: freepuppet-helper GenerateIPsFromRoutes to add the new IPs to puppet. git add and git commit the new files created.
  • Add IP addresses to our DNS servers (for reverse lookups).
    • For Bandcon: Login to mayfirst@hay.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. Keep track of #7196 for changes.
