Route Servers

The following route servers are in operation on the Exchange:


The route servers only implement basic filtering.

A list of bogons is copied from http://www.team-cymru.org/Services/Bogons/bogon-bn-agg.txt and these routes are filtered inbound and outbound. In addition both IPv4 and IPv6 default routes are filtered as well as IPv4 prefixes > /24 and IPv6 prefixes > /48.

There are also filters that limit the number of prefixes that any peer can announce:

  • Default Max IPv4 prefixes: 1000
  • Default Max IPv6 prefixes: 100
Any organisation wishing to announce more than these defaults should contact peering@citylink.co.nz.


There are 2 organisations configured to peer with the route servers, if you believe this is in error again please contact peering@citylink.co.nz.
