Daily tests: Submit an IPv6 Whois - problem
« on: November 30, 2011, 01:41:22 AM »

Hello,

I have noticed that not all valid and correct whois responses are accepted. The daily test fails with a message: "It looks like you submitted an invalid whois query!"

Here are two examples:
Code: [Select]
[root@mailhost ipv6]# whois 2001:550:1:b::d
[Querying whois.arin.net]
[Redirected to rwhois.cogentco.com:4321]

...while the responses from arin.net are accepted without any problem.

Is this a bug or intention?

Thank you.

The whois test does not accept rwhois output, which is what you see in the examples you provided. It only accepts whois output from RIRs.

Right... thank you very much for enlightening me.
Until now, I believed, that all valid, non empty, responses of whois command should be acceptable - at least considering with the common sense - but validation scripts are just a piece of code written by a programmer who not necessarily follows the common sense :) (sometimes I am one of those)

Is there any risk using rwhois? Is this answer not enough authoritative? 

Thank you.

Z

The code expects RIR formatted answers, not rwhois, as it has since the start of the Certification Program. People have completed all 100 whois submissions, just looking at the ~200 Sages with 1500 alone, so it is not impossible to complete a daily submission.

Hello,

...I am also on a good way to manage all my 100 daily tests... I would like to turn daily testers' attention that not just the rwhois format is not accepted, but the character encoding also counts.

I ran into troubles with getting the following error on valid whois responses:
Quote
Result: Fail
Reason: Record mismatch
 

If we take a closer look we see that the responses differs in ISO-8859-1 and UTF-8. I do not know what encoding HE uses during verification, but for sure non of those :)

Here is an example. please notice the difference in "person" records.

ISO-8859-1 encoding
Code: [Select]
