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@example.com 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or (703) 227-0660 as noted on the ARIN web pages at http://www.arin.net ? -- Michael Dillon - E-mail: email@example.com Check the website for my Internet World articles - http://www.memra.com
