Using the BKNIX Route Server
Activate Your IXP-Manager Account
    When you have made your arrangements with the BKNIX administrative process, you should have been given credentials to access your account on the BKNIX IXP-Manager
Use IXP-Manager to Peer with BKNIX Services
    To use services such as the BKNIX NTP server, RPKI server, etc. without going through a transit provider, you should peer with the BKNIX Services AS, 63528.
Registering in the RPKI
    For cryptographically secure resource validation, you shoud register in the Resource Public Key Infrastructure. You need to use the registry from which you acquired your address space; for Thai address holders, this is usually APNIC
Configuring your Router to Receive RPKI Data Register in the IRR
    Peers filter using the Internet Routing Registries or the RPKI. To register in the IRR, you need to choose which IRR instance to use and then register there. Here are a few of the more common alternatives.
Using the BKNIX NTP Server
    To get accurate time (for logging etc.) you should be a client of a number of NTP servers. BKNIX provides a local accurate stratum-1 server for you to add to your server list.
