Subject: IM based BGP route-server interface
To: nanog at nanog.org


We have been experimenting with Instant Messaging as
an interface for providing easier access to a route-server.
(no longer need to telnet xyz or use annoying web forms).

We have essentially created a BGP chat bot.  You can
reach it by adding AIM: bgpbotz ( or Jabber: bgpbotz at jabber.merit.edu)
to your buddy list.
Just type 'help' or '?' to get started or 'examples'.  Most normal
queries are supported.  You should be able to view routes
from Merit's perspective by querying bgpbotz.

We would really appreciate any feedback on this project.
The website is at: http://software.merit.edu/bgpbotz

As bgpbotz is essentially just a query interface to an underlying
route-server we would be happpy to add your BGP feeds to our
installation and make them available as "views" for other people
to query.  Please feel free to contact us if you are interested in
setting this up.  Alternately you can download the chat bot
code from the website and run it yourself.  In that case please
let us know so that we can add your bot to the project website.

All comments are welcome.
