RIPE (Reseaux IP Europeens) is a collaborative organisation open to all
European Internet service providers. The objective of RIPE is to ensure
the necessary administrative and technical coordination to allow the
operation of a pan-European IP network. RIPE does not operate a network
of its own. RIPE is the IP activity of RARE.

RIPE has been functioning since 1989. Currently more than 60
organisations participate in the work. The result of the RIPE
coordination effort is that the individual end-user is presented on his
desk-top with a uniform IP service irrespective of the particular
network his or her workstation is attached to. Today more than 170.000
computers throughout Europe are reachable via networks coordinated by
RIPE. The total number of systems reachable worldwide is estimated at
more than 800.000.

HYTELNET was developed by Peter Scott: scott@lights.ca
