How do we donate to InterAUS?

We rely on donations to operate, as we are a free exchange, please email and we can discuss arangements.

What rules/requirements are there?

The internet exchange switch is a fabric shared by all peers. Peers must avoid doing anything which might overload the fabric, mis-direct traffic, or otherwise cause harm to any other peers. If a peer shows a willful disregard for others, they will be disconnected by the operators.

Additionally, peers are only permitted to send traffic to destinations advertised by BGP.

Do not point default routes and do not point static routes to other operators.

Peers are expected to keep a generally consistent connection with us, if a connection is not done within 21 days, we may disconnect you.

While not a rule, we request that peers register themselves with, because visibility there will encourage other networks to join as well, bringing more benefit to all.

What operating systems are supported?

Basically any system that supports BGP.
