Description Peter Bieringer 2006-08-25 07:41:42 EDT
jwhois of RHEL4 is more outdated:

# rpm -q jwhois

# whois 2001:a60:9002:1::165:1
[Querying whois.6bone.net]
connect: Connection refused at /usr/local/bin/tcptunnel.pl line 154.

6bone is switched off according to RFC 3701.

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #191290 +++

Description of problem:
jwhois.conf is a little bit outdated and misses some newer IPv6 address delegations.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
jwhois-3.2.3-4 (from devel)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try 
$ whois 2a01:0800::/23
Actual results:
$ whois 2a01:0800::/23|grep Querying
[Querying whois.6bone.net]

Expected results:
$ whois 2a01:0800::/23|grep Querying
[Querying whois.ripe.net]

Additional info:
I removed also the 6bone catchall to 6bone-only lookup, makes no sense today and
sure after 6.6.2006

I have added the 2001:B000::/20 range, applied the patch in rawhide
jwhois-3.2.3-5, and forwarded it upstream.
Comment 1 Peter Bieringer 2007-04-11 10:07:51 EDT
There is still no update available for RHEL4, also I didn't found a new version
of jwhois in beta channel. Can I ever expect an updated version for RHEL4 now?
Comment 5 RHEL Product and Program Management 2009-01-06 13:46:34 EST
This bugzilla has Keywords FutureFeature or HardwareEnablement and thus does not meet the
release criteria for FasTrack. This FasTrack request has been denied.
This bugzilla must be addressed in a minor release.
Comment 6 RHEL Product and Program Management 2009-01-06 13:47:25 EST
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in
the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. If you would like
this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your
support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".
Comment 8 Ondrej Vasik 2010-03-23 07:07:13 EDT
As RHEL-4.9 is last update for RHEL-4 and it is not suitable for new features
and should address only security, performance and critical issues, I'm closing
that bugzilla WONTFIX. Problem is fixed in RHEL-5.
