• 2:203/0 tomorrow

    From Björn Felten@2:203/2 to Björn Felten on Thu Mar 21 18:56:03 2019
    Moving this from the spam stricken echo where I mistakenly posted it:

    Well, within 24 hours we will know how the transfer from one ISP to another have worked.

    In Sweden we can chose whatever electricity provider we want. With
    the switch from one to the other, we expect the changeover to be totally smooth, so that we don't lose a single period of electricity. And it works. The new provider simply issues a changeover to the old provider
    and the change is done instantly.

    Why it can't work the same for fiber is beyond me. Here the ISPs all have a 30 day notice. I had to ask my old ISP to cancel my account and then inform my new ISP when, after 30 days, the cancellation was going
    to take place, and then hope that my new ISP will be ready to take over. After a minute, an hour or half a day depending on how alert they are.

    If you have VoIP only phones and no email access, it's kinda hard to reach the helpdesk of your new ISP to inform them that it's a go to connect me via their service...

    It appears that the old ISP didn't fulfill their promise even after their appalling 30 days notice.

    I'm still connected via my old ISP, they haven't let go of my fiber as promised. The new information from their helpdesk is that it "might" happen tomorrow slightly after 09:00, when their technicians start working (ain't that some comfortable working hours?).

    Stay tuned for more information tomorrow -- if I have internet connection by then.

    Well, my old ISP let go of the fiber at 00:00. It wasn't before the guys at my new ISP got to work that I became connected around 08:00.

    But by then I had an IP number in the 100.64.0.0/10 private address block, so it took another half hour to get that corrected. And then the rest (updating DNS and tunnel endpoint) took around another half hour.

    So now, since around 09:00, I hope that all is working properly.

    Hello Bjrn,

    On Friday March 22 2019 10:43, you wrote to you:

    Fortunately Fidonet is robust against short interruptions of connectivity. ;-)

    But by then I had an IP number in the 100.64.0.0/10 private address block, so it took another half hour to get that corrected.

    100.64.0.0/10 is not exactly "private". It is the block reserved for CGNAT. Amomg other things, CGNAT is used in combination with DS-Lite. So maybe you had native IPv6 without noticing?

    And then the rest (updating DNS and tunnel endpoint) took around
    another half hour.

    So now, since around 09:00, I hope that all is working properly.

    From what I can see, it works as it should.


    Cheers, Michiel

    It seems that you were offline about 10 hours. (time stamps EET).

    For incoming traffic, that's quite probable. One hour for the new DNS entry is reasonable, no?

    But outgoing traffic took place earlier than that.

    But nine or ten hours -- it still makes a severe dent in my uptime statistics. 8-)

    "binkp from=2001:470:27:302::2"

    What the fuck... That log here is incoming. So it must be outgoing from
    you?
