Humm. Questions posted to [email protected] almost always get a reasonable response. Post the details about your "dead-end" there. (See .) > From: Dean Robb > NSI is *supposed* to be spearheading the RWhoIs effort, they *should* be > helpful. Huh? Perhaps you are confusing rwhois with whois? The IETF WG on RWHOIS is dead. See announcement at . Near as I can tell, NSI only keeps rwhois DN entries up to date. Rwhois.internic.net (aka root.rwhois.net) CIDR block records appear to be a farce--none of WiscNet's are in sync with year-old changes and our /16 allocation from this summer has never been added. So rwhois has degenerated into little more than a mechanism for convincing ARIN to dole out address space, imo. Does anyone listening actually use the root rwhois service (eg non-internal rwhois service) per se? You might notice some almost laughable irony here: ARIN required us to run an rwhois server with very detailed and up to date records to justify an address block request. Yet the root rwhois server doesn't have a record for the address block that we got allocated.
