Posix Systems peering policy11th January, 2007 - Version 1.2
Posix Systems follows the ISPA (Internet Service Providers Association - South Africa) default policy of exchanging traffic with all other participants on a settlement free basis. Posix Systems was one of the founding members of ISPA and JINX, one of our first accomplishments.
Posix Systems does not have a formal peering contract but if needed, may sign such agreements.
Posix Systems prefers to use BGP V4 (Border Gateway Protocol) for the exchange of routing updates so peers should have their own ASN (Autonomous System Number) and IP Address space. BGP Sessions may be password protected.
The usual permissible minimum on routes is for '/24' routes - i.e. routed networks should be a minimum of a Class 'C' network.
For IPv6 routes, the minimum is a /48.
About ASN 6083
Posix Systems uses ASN 6083. 'Home' networks to this ASN are:
Note: 18.104.22.168/23 is only routed from outside Southern Africa, but visible via international routes.
(2001:42a0:7000::/40 maps the same services as above)
22.214.171.124/23 is only routed in Southern Africa and not available overseas. It serves content restricted to Southern Africa.
Some customers of Posix route with their own ASN and IP Blocks

- ASN 32842 with 188.8.131.52/22 Tradepage - South African ISP
Route Registry and AS-MACRO's
AfriNIC (the African Registry) does not currently support a Routing Registry system. Posix Systems has thus registered various routing objects with RIPE. These include
All peering queries should be addressed to:
