Talk:Bogon filtering

Why is a "citation needed" for the statement that the unallocated space is going to expand drastically with v6? Do we also need citations for the statement that 20-digit numbers are larger than 10-digit numbers? This strikes me as going kinda overboard... Iron Condor 00:23, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

I've never added a link that I'm connected with before, but the "Bogons ate my website" article has been reprinted and published enough times that I felt it was appropriate. If it isn't, let me know.

dead link in page?[edit]

Why bogon filtering using BGP is useless This link seems to be to a missing article. I have not tried contacting the author of the site yet; but I think the article no longer exists.

I've removed the dead link; feel free to re-add if you find a working version of it and it seems appropriate per WP:EL. —Krellis (Talk) 18:38, 6 May 2008 (UTC)

Bogon filtering or Bogon?[edit]

There is at least as much discussion of the word "bogon" in this article as there is of filtering same.

Either the title should be changed or a redirect from "bogon" should be added.

IPv4 exhaustion[edit]

IMHO this article could do with updating to reflect that IPv4 is now exhausted. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.105.212.184 (talk) 14:21, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

Is there any Bogon address space now that IPv4 exhaustion has been declared? Burt Harris 01:08, 29 September 2011 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Burt Harris (talkcontribs)

240.0.0.0/4 (Class E). I believe the reason it was never considered for unicast was widespread hard coded filtering. --Cybjit (talk) 21:30, 17 October 2011 (UTC)

Expert needed[edit]

Looks like whomever wrote this article doesn't know CIDR notation and otherwise doesn't know what he/she is talking about.Jasper Deng (talk) 17:38, 27 June 2011 (UTC)
