hi! I hope this is the correct forum.
I'd like to obtain a /24 public IP address block, which will be used as the NAT pool that represent our company when this company connect to other business partners via Extranet.
Thus when we advertise this prefix to other firms:
1. this IP prefix is public
2. this IP prefix is not being advertised on the internet
I called ARIN but they told me we need to be BGP multi-homed first, already using /24 and show some usage...
or we can apply for prefix from ISP
I am a little confused now. I have worked in some other place where they already own a few /24. so they advertise a few on the internet, then use the other prefix for Extranet routing.
any help is appreciated!
