AMPRNet IP Coordination Germany

The German AMPRNet IP-Coordination is a working group which has been elected by the Community of all German Radioamateurs. It works in a kind of „AMPRNet National IP Registry (ANIR)“ for the german parts of the worldwide TCP/IP-network for Radio-Amateurs, also called NET-44 or AMPRNet. DL-IP-Coordination Germany is supported by regional IP-Coordinators in a kind of „AMPRNet Regional IP Registry (ARIR)“. In many german sub-regions these guys are the responsible persons for any questions, problems and requests from Radioamateurs out of those sub-regions concerning participation in the NET-44. ARIRs can manage their submitted IP-ressources independantly within the region they are responsible for.

DL-IP-Coordination Germany develops and maintains some essential Services for the German part of the AMPRNet:

  • Assigning AS-numbers (BGP-routing) for the german HAMNET in conciliation with adjacent European Countries
  • Maintaining a WHOIS-server for the HamRadio-services for internal documentation and information about all German networks in HAMNET. HamCloud, IPIP-mesh etc
  • Assigning of IP-networks to the AS-numbers in the German HAMNET and registering those entries in „ampr.org“
  • Assigning of IP-addresses in the german networks and registering them in the „ampr.org“ domain
  • Organizing and maintaining a german-wide concept of regional zones with „de.ampr.org“ sub-domain
  • Maintaining 3 main DNS-servers as (DNS-Hubs) for HAMNET with mirrors in HamCloud (located at universities of Duisburg-Essen, Dresden and Nuremberg)
  • Developing and submitting software for synchronization and plugging regional DNS-servers to the national DNS-hubs
  • Developing and maintaining automatic updates to the wordlwide DNS-servers for the domain „ampr.org
  • Developing and submitting of publications about technical realisation of ip-coordination in Germany
