Description Robert Scheck 2009-02-22 00:33:59 EST
Description of problem:
The old CGI at nic.bi doesn't exist any longer. I think, I hacked a working
solution for the new interface, but nic.bi is a bit broken (you can see the
same broken result in the web browser as well, it's a server side issue).

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

How reproducible:
Everytime, whois query fails.

Actual and expected results:

Replace: "\\.bi$" = "www.nic.bi";
by     : "\\.bi$" = "whois.nic.bi";

--- snipp ---
"www\\.nic\\.bi" {
        http = "true";
        http-method = "POST";
        http-action = "/cgi-bin/whoisbi.pl"; # Formatting problems in Lynx
        form-element = "DOMAINWHOIS";

--- snapp ---
--- snipp ---
"whois\\.nic\\.bi" {
        http = "true"; # I can't connect on port 43
        http-method = "GET";
        http-action = "/register/whois.hei";
        form-element = "query";
        form-extra = "type=domain";
--- snapp ---

Additional info:
Please try to get this fix upstream - upstream is unluckily always very very
unresponsive to me.
