Generic Hostnames

A lot of ISPs use what is known as a 'generic' hostname for their users. These are normally constructed from a series of letters and numbers, followed by the ISP's name. Some good examples are those used by T-Dialin (example: pD9551B44.dip.t-dialin.net) or nextgentel (example: 55.80-202-24.nextgentel.com).

You cannot apply for a trust if you have one of these generic hostnames, unless it is for an ISP-based NAT (in which case the ISP needs to contact us, not you) or for a LAN party (in which case you will get a temporary trust, typically no more than 5 days, for a low number of users, and it will not be able to be renewed).
