American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN) requires Internet Service Providers and their customers to justify address assignments. As a result, Fireline Broadband requires customers requesting more than 5 usable address (/29), to submit justification for current and future use of the address space. All request for IP addresses greater than a /29 requires a topology diagram or a detailed spreadsheet showing how the requested IP addresses will be used in your network.
Fireline Broadband’s guideline for requesting additional IP Address Assignments:
- Please fill out the following form if you require more than 5 usable addresses (/29).
All request above a /29 requires a topology diagram or detailed spreadsheet showing how the requested IP space will be used in your network. All Fireline Broadband’s IP addresses are non-portable and will remain the property of Fireline Broadband. Allocated IP address will not be transferred to the customer under any circumstance.
- Applications not eligible for additional IP address assignments-
- Applications where NAT/PAT can be used.
- Allocation for individual workstations is not accepted. Customers are required to use NAT/PAT for this type of application.
- Web hosting- Customers should use virtual hosts for standard HTTP. If this is not possible, a detailed engineering explanation must be provided.
- Applications that may be a security risk to Fireline Broadband or its customers and applications where usage of a VPN is considered best practice.
- File sharing
- Remote Desktop access
- Active Directory Servers
- DHCP Servers
