whois anomaly with IPv6
« on: May 01, 2012, 07:21:22 AM »

Using HE's tunnel broker and getting a strange anomaly with my whois client. It times out when querying for .com and .net domain info unless I force it to use the IPv4 address for whois.crsnic.net. The .uk IPv6 enabled whois server works fine with IPv6.

Anyone else seeing this?

Hah, I noticed that too, but I hadn't traced it back to an ipv6 issue yet (I just hadn't had time to look at it).

Code: [Select]
whois google.com
[Querying whois.verisign-grs.com]
and it just sits there.

Same if I try whois google.com@whois.internic.net

A little digging show both point to the same AAAA:  2001:503:bfb0:1060::74

I can ping that IP.

I'll dig more into it later.

Adding:
Code: [Select]
\.com$ 199.7.57.74
\.net$ 199.7.57.74
to the /etc/whois.conf file is a workaround.
