How to req. IN-ADDR.ARPA reg./connected nets




[netinfo/in-addr-template.txt]


The Internet uses a special domain to support gateway location and
Internet address to host mapping.  The intent of this domain is to
provide a guaranteed method to perform host address to host name
mapping, and to facilitate queries to locate all gateways on a
particular network in the Internet.


			IN-ADDR.ARPA Registration


The following information is needed for delegation of registered
networks in your domain for inclusion in the IN-ADDR.ARPA zone files:

	* the IN-ADDR.ARPA domain
	* the Network name
	* the Hostnames of the two hosts on networks
           that will be acting as IN-ADDR servers

IN-ADDR domains are represented using the network number in reverse.
For example, network 123.45.67.0's IN-ADDR domain is represented as
67.45.123.IN-ADDR.ARPA.

	For example:

	IN-ADDR domain        Network Name     IN-ADDR Servers
                                               (Hostname)
                                               (NetAddress)
                                               (CPUType/OpSys)

	41.192.IN-ADDR.ARPA   NET-TEST-ONE     BAR.FOO.EDU
                                               123.45.67.89
                                               VAX-II/VMS
                                               ONE.ABC.COM
                                               98.76.54.32
                                               SUN/UNIX

NOTE: Unless specified, new hosts registered as IN-ADDR servers will
be registered in the root servers only and will not appear in the
HOSTS.TXT file.



Please have the Network Coordinator complete and return the following
information for those networks needing IN-ADDR registration.



         IN-ADDR domain        Network Name    IN-ADDR Servers
