Comment 2 Vitezslav Crhonek 2007-11-07 07:51:50 EST

I investigated it, but can't find out where the problem is - jwhois.conf is up
to date, right address is taken...

Another point - you closed #230001 as working in 4.0-1 - does it still work for
you? 4.0-2 is same as 4.0-1 (only fixed license and maybe cache not disabled by
default, IIRC), so if it all worked in 4.0-1 I wonder why it doesn't work now:(
Comment 3 Robert Scheck 2007-11-07 09:31:20 EST
Wrong address is taken. IANA is queried instead of RIPE. So the lookup within 
the configuration file seems to fail somewhere...
Comment 4 Robert Scheck 2007-11-07 09:33:17 EST
Bug #230001 works further on as expected.
Comment 5 Lubomir Kundrak 2007-12-04 10:16:00 EST
This matches 2001:0620::5 and it obviously shouldn't:

        "2001:0000::/23" = "whois.iana.org";

Proposed fix

I think I found that. Robert: you seem to use whois extensively -- could you
please look if it doesn't break something for you (if we don't rely on the
wrong matching somewhere, etc.)
Comment 7 Robert Scheck 2007-12-05 18:37:25 EST
Lubomir, you're good - the fix works. I'll test the patch the next few days
during regular work. And yes, I'm using whois much times a day, but this is
normal when working for a company which is also an ISP ;-)
