Title: Having trouble with IPv6 whois lookup test
Post by: Cloudmaster on October 25, 2010, 06:35:41 AM
Hi all,

Whatever I do I can't get the site to accept my whois lookup, always getting 'It looks like you submitted an invalid whois query!'

Any clues?

Well, what are you submitting?

The problem I had was that I was trying to submit the actual query, not the output of the query.

For example, if the query is

Code: [Select]
carl@mars ~]$ whois -h whois.arin.net 2001:b48:10:3::11
And the output is
Code: [Select]

You would copy and paste the second code box into the box on HE's site.

Your missing the referral part in your reply. Doing this from a rhel5 system, it only posted the info returned from the whois referral:

Looks like you just need to give whois the -i option to force the output of all whois servers, instead of just the last one.
Title: Re: Having trouble with IPv6 whois lookup test
Post by: Cloudmaster on October 25, 2010, 07:00:55 AM
Was about to ask how I get the right output, just tried the -i option and the output is vastly different.  Thanks both for your replies.
Title: Re: Having trouble with IPv6 whois lookup test
Post by: deesfantasyplace on July 13, 2011, 05:25:53 PM
Having read these replies, I'm still in the dark.

I suspect I am missing something basic here, but no clue where to go.
Maybe I just don't understand the question.

I am suspicious that the version of whois I have is different from some others. I.E. The -i option is invalid.

All of my attempts produce the "invalid query"!

Example:

whois -h whois.arin.net n 2001:5c0:110c:500::1

Produces:

#
# The following results may also be obtained via:
# http://whois.arin.net/rest/nets;q=2001:5c0:110c:500::1?showDetails=true&showARIN=true

gogo6 Inc. GOGO6-V6-NET1 (NET6-2001-5C0-1) 2001:5C0:: - 2001:5C0:FFFF:FFFF:FFFF:FFFF:FFFF:FFFF


#
# ARIN WHOIS data and services are subject to the Terms of Use
# available at: https://www.arin.net/whois_tou.html
#

Which is an invalid query!

I do hope someone can/will point me in the right direction.

Wow. What a difference a "+" makes.

Now to find out why.

Thanks!

I've looked for an answer. Didn't find one.
Nothing ( I could find ) on ARIN's website explains their whois program.
The help that's available shows no +  ( or n for that matter ).

The man page for whois is not very informative either.

I'm still looking but any pointers to the documentation is most welcome.

Hmm...

 whois -h whois.arin.net "n + 2001:5c0:110c:500::1"
Seems to work, but the posted output, produced a failure.

So. I'm still either not understanding the question or something else is wrong.

Try whois -h whois.arin.net "?"

What that will produce is the help page for ARIN's whois database. 

Another tip....when you post the results don't post the first portion - or the ARIN allocation. 

Hope this helps.....

Thanks. I had looked at "help" from ARIN before. I missed some of it.

Tried several different pieces of the output. None seem to be the "right" one.

I'm convinced that somehow I don't understand the question.
Tried some different queries n r with and without + > <

Perhaps the "light bulb" will go on soon...

OK. No light bulbs yet.

I've tried, again, several different switches. The simple one.

whois -h whois.arin.net 2001:5c0:110c:500:213:d4ff:fec0:a1d9

Which gives ( without the comments ):

American Registry for Internet Numbers ARIN-001 (NET6-2001-400-0) 2001:400:: - 2001:5FF:FFFF:FFFF:FFFF:FFFF:FFFF:FFFF
gogo6 Inc. GOGO6-V6-NET1 (NET6-2001-5C0-1) 2001:5C0:: - 2001:5C0:FFFF:FFFF:FFFF:FFFF:FFFF:FFFF

Pasting both lines or the second line gives "Invalid Query"

Using:
whois -h whois.arin.net "n + 2001:5c0:110c:500:213:d4ff:fec0:a1d9"

which gives ( without the comments )

Posting either both or the second indicates "Failure"

I've tried with and without the comments.

What am I not understanding?

I'll try an ARIN whois tomorrow....to see if I can replicate....


In the interim, if you are just looking for whois IPs...use these:

ftp.afrinic.net/pub/stats/afrinic/delegated-afrinic-latest
ftp.apnic.net/pub/stats/apnic/delegated-apnic-latest
ftp.lacnic.net/pub/stats/lacnic/delegated-lacnic-latest
ftp.ripe.net/pub/stats/ripencc/delegated-ripencc-latest

Just find an allocated IPv6 address...do a whois (with the appropriate whois database) and post.

Hope this helps.

Interesting...likewise I was unable to submit a successful ARIN whois....

Perhaps a moderator can chime in.

ah ha!

It *appears* that the output format is the problem.

I tried one from apnic. Took the first few lines. Worked just fine.
