What's a LOA, and how do I proceed to get one?
For the next phase of my small-scale anycast project, I've been asked by a VPS provider to provide a LOA for my IPv6 block. This block is a PA block from RIPE (via a LIR). The block's WHOIS already lists my company.
I've asked the below questions of my VPS provider but they didn't get back, they probably consider it too micro for the level of support.
So, my questions are?
1) Who must issue this LOA? My company or the LIR? I've searched for samples on the web; some are issued by the company having the IP block, but other information about LOA states that the LOA must be issued by the upstream provider of the IP block.
2) Should the LOA authorize my company, authorize the VPS provider, or authorize the company that has the peering AS? (It seems the VPS provider in question does not do BGP themselves).
