As described earlier, look for the nic-handles that have been supplied in the JPNIC output, ie: a. [Network Number] 18.104.22.168-22.214.171.124 b. [Network Name] ALLNET-CATV m. [Administrative Contact] YO020JP <---- Then, perform a specific query for that nic-handle 'YO020JP', ie: $ whois -h whois.nic.ad.jp YO020JP/e a. [JPNIC Handle] YO020JP c. [Last, First] Oishi, Yuichi d. [E-Mail] [email protected] g. [Organization] TITUS COMMUNICATIONS CORPORATION (etc). The RIPE-style databases (RIPE, APNIC etc) provide you with the referenced nic-handles (if available) as part of the output, as seperate database objects. The NSI-style databases (NSI, ARIN etc) embed the contact information in the whois output, but you can (like other dbs, including JPNIC) request contact details specifically if you know the nic-handle. --==-- Bruce.
