Description Chris Jones 2005-04-28 04:35:46 EDT
Description of problem:
There is no reference in /etc/jwhois.conf for the new Afrinic registry

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. whois
Actual results:
produces a default report from RIPE explaining that the whois record is now
maintained by whois.afrinic.net

Expected results:
I would expect to see the details of the registered customer of Afrinic for the
IP address queried

Actual Output:
[root@bilbo log]# whois
[Querying whois.ripe.net]
% This is the RIPE Whois query server #2.
% The objects are in RPSL format.
% Note: the default output of the RIPE Whois server
% is going to be changed soon. Your tools may need
% to be adjusted. See

Comment 2 Miloslav Trmač 2005-04-30 13:47:59 EDT
Unfortunately I can't find a single authoritative list of all
address ranges now managed by AfriNIC, so I have added only this
single range to rawhide jwhois-3.2.2-14.

Thanks for your report.
