End-users not currently connected to an ISP and/or not planning to be connected to the Internet are encouraged to use private IP address numbers reserved for non-connected networks (see RFC 1918). When private, non-connected networks require interconnectivity and the private IP address numbers are ineffective, globally unique addresses may be requested and used to provide this interconnectivity.
This text supersedes section 4.3.5 Non-connected Networks.
In order to provide clarification for current ARIN practice concerning the use of Global Addresses for private network interconnectivity, the change above to the ARIN Number Resource Policy Manual is proposed.
Current wording of Section 4.3.5 Non-connected Networks:
End-users not currently connected to an ISP and/or plan not to be connected to the Internet are encouraged to use private IP numbers reserved for non-connected networks (see RFC 1918 </library/rfc/rfc1918.txt>).
