...Thanks goes out to:
- Advanced IP

...and everyone else who've helped out.
- Every member or canditate must have a valid non private ASN (Autonomous System Number) and use BGP4 for peerings. Candidate must also have an internet related business and an 24x7 operational contact.
- Peering relationships between members themselves aren't regulated by STHIX. Every member is responsible for arranging peering agreements with other members. To help members increase their peerings, STHIX offers a route server service.
- Only free peering traffic is allowed over STHIX peering LAN - members shall not sell transit over the STHIX peering LAN.
- STHIX doesn't offer hosting services on STHIX POPs so only cables (twisted pair and fiber) will be allowed from members. Hosting of member muxes, routers, switches, and all other equipement are the responsibilty of the member.
- STHIX cannot be responsible for direct or indirect consequential loss, loss of profits, business, revenue, goodwill, or anticipated savings resulting from a STHIX service outage.
- IPv4/IPv6 address space assigned to STHIX members shall not be advertised to other networks. Members shall not use other IP subnet over STHIX peering LAN and shall not connect other devices than necessary BGP router.
- STHIX connected interfaces must only use IP addresses and netmasks (prefix lengths) assigned to them by STHIX. Router feature like ProxyARP, Spanning-tree, IGMP, CDP, IPX, RA aren't allowed and should be disabled.
- By default STHIX assigns one SFP port to members. TenGigabitEthernet ports are currently available at some of the STHIX POPs. Contact STHIX staff if you are interested in 10GE.
- STHIX can suspend or discontinue the connection, in whole or in part :
- If the member isn't respecting or agreeing to any of the above STHIX rules.
- In case of force majeur.
- If the STHIX receives an authoritative request or desire to comply with a statutory obligation.
- If maintenance is required.
- Every member has to follow common sense for connecting to an IXP.. We encourage everyone, no matter their experience and knowledge, to please have a look at http://ams-ix.net/config-guide/ for general information and configuration guidance.
