Description Lubomir Kundrak 2007-11-20 11:41:48 EST
Description of problem:

In case the WHOIS server has both A and AAAA/A6 DNS records (such as the default
one, whois.ripe.net) and IPv6 connection is not available, jwhois will fail to
connect due to broken logic of iterating through available addresses.  

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. $ whois netbsd.sk
Actual results:

[Querying whois.ripe.net]
[Unable to connect to remote host]

Expected results:

[Querying whois.ripe.net]
% This is the RIPE Whois query server #2.
% The objects are in RPSL format.
% Rights restricted by copyright.
% See http://www.ripe.net/db/copyright.html

% The object shown below is NOT in the RIPE database.
% It has been obtained by querying a remote server:
% (whois.sk-nic.sk) at port 43.
% To see the object stored in the RIPE database
% use the -R flag in your query
% whois.sk-nic.sk - whois server for TLD .sk

Additional info:

The fix is attached.
Is there any good reason the package does not have cvsextras commits enabled?
