Description Jim Walker 1999-12-09 12:10:19 EST
Hello:
I note your name on the fwhois changelog:
http://mirror.ox.ac.uk/rpm2html/rawhide.redhat.com/i386/RedHat/RPMS/fwhois-
1.00-11.i386.html

Question:
Are you aware that whois as it is now if not functional?

Currently whois/fwhois queries: rs.internic.net

This is no longer valid with the addition of new registrars (register.com,
et al).

In order to make whois a functional tool, it needs to query:
whois.crsnic.net

This is the new central whois lookup for netsol, register.com, etc.

rs.internic.net only queries NetSol (very bad and get's hosting companies in
trouble).

Ideas?

Best Wishes,
Jim Walker

This will be fixed in fwhois-1.00-12 (or later) in Raw Hide.  Thanks for the
heads-up.
