Yesterday morning the company I own, Hextet Systems, was assigned AS 395089 from ARIN’s pool of ASNs. By mid-afternoon I had turned up BGP with my first uptream for IPv6, and was advertising a /44. By 11PM I had finished setting up IPv4 BGP as well and was advertising my /24. I had succeeded in turning up an ASN fully on the very first day.

I’ve had the fun of setting up several accounts related to having an ASN.

And setting up new IRR records:

And purchasing a new domain name to use for technical info and reverse DNS on the edge for traceroutes.
