The Old Backnet
Spurred on by the Twitter discussion regarding the old Backnet network and Electron Club founding, I went for a rummage through some backups.

Fond memories of the Backnet Assigned Names And Number Authority, BANANA. Whilst I still use 172.24.32.0, I’ve expanded somewhat from the /27 to /24. My home network won’t fit on a /27 these days! Gordon is on 172.24.33.0/24, my parents on 172.24.34.0/24. The legacy lives on a little, and still technically within the allocated BANANA range 🙂
Archive.org to the rescue! https://web.archive.org/web/20050421022318/http://wiki.backnet.org/BANANA/Addresses
Like I say, these are from backups. The file this came from was last modified in 2004!
Current Address Allocations
The majority of these addresses also route to the Backnet network
GlasgowNet currently runs on the IP range 172.24.32.0/21, and we have 172.24.40.0/21 as well for overflow usage.
We also use AS numbers 65088 – 65103 from the private AS numbers range defined by IANA
You can see the current routing table on one of the routers at the looking glass
