 At the request of the ANSP Ecosystem community, a looking glass for ANSP was installed in January 2014.


Commencing on 31/01/2014, ANSP has begun to offer a new service to its ecosystem community: a looking glass for ANSP has been installed. A looking glass, also known as a router proxy, is a very simple web interface that can be used by network administrators to run limited commands on routers in order to troubleshoot routing problems.

Several institutions have a looking glass, such as RNP (National Research and Education Network) and AMPATH (Pathway of the Americas).

The ANSP looking glass, after going through the testing phase for internal use, has been approved and installed, and is now available for community use on the ANSP page, under "Network and Services".

ANSP has started the year 2014 offering one more relevant service to the members of the ANSP Ecosystem.
