There is no such thing as the Internic/ARIN registry. There is an Internic registry operated by Network Solutions. And there is an ARIN registry operated by ARIN which you can query by whois -h whois.arin.net 128.65 or whois [email protected] depending on your whois client. > Upon contacting the NIC I was told "Prove it's yours."

Let me know who you think > it belongs to. Since this block doesn't show up in ARIN's whois database I'll assume that you are complaining about that fact. If so, why aren't you directing your complaints to [email protected] or (703) 227-0660 as noted on the ARIN web pages at http://www.arin.net ? -- Michael Dillon - E-mail: [email protected] Check the website for my Internet World articles - http://www.memra.com
