Description: ------------ Most IP addresses utilise the ReferralServer field for rwhois. It works in an identical way to regular whois, but you must follow the data in the ReferralServer to call the correct details. Details on the rwhois protocol can be found here: It's perhaps worth noting that this works in a very similar way to the existing "authoritative" lookups. Support for rwhois would permit IP lookups to work as expected, rather than returning limited details.

I've changed this to a bug, as it was previously working, but it isn't. The problem is due to the matching that is used, as now the hosts are FQDN and have a trailing ".", where as before they didn't. A quick fix would be to trim the hosts as they are matched. FIND if (strstr($line, $this->_nicServers[$ipNicServer])) { CHANGE TO if (strstr($line, trim($this->_nicServers[$ipNicServer],'.'))) { A long term fix would be to swap out this method with proper rwhois support. eg: $pattern='#ReferralServer: whois://(.+?):43#'; Please don't hesitate to use the quick fix, then modify this back to a feature request. Thanks.

This bug has been fixed in SVN. If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on by the end of next Sunday (CET). If this was a problem with the website, the change should be live shortly. Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release. Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better.
