than your upstream provider.
"IP Space" means a block of IP addresses i.e (Class C), or to

Subject: [NTISP] BGP newbie questions


I'm just starting to learn BGP.

Someone told me that to do BGP, I need my own AS number and IP space.

I read that I can get an AS number from InterNIC. Exactly how do I apply for
one ? Where in their website do I request for one ? What are the
requirements ?

What does "IP Space" mean ?
