Quick questions to the experts. I have two routers connected to two different ISPs in  amultihoming implementation fashion. I have my own publli CIDR block from ARIN. Are the IP addresses on my interfaces peering with the ISPs coming from my CIDR block or the ISPs will provide the /30 IP addresses? Thx

    Accepted Solution

    I believe that the IP addresses on the peering interfaces would come from the ISP. It makes no sense to me Wyoming they would come out of your ARIN allocation. Can't your ISPs answers for you?

    I think it makes more sense that it comes from the ISP. I did not ask the ISPs yet. But I will.

    Assisted Solution

    As part of your ISP service they do provide the addresses for peering, this is standard practice. Now that does not mean you cannot use your own addressing but why bust up your blocks, your paying for anyway because it is part of your service.
