I was pointed to, and have downloaded, the NSI source, or the source purported to be in use by NSI (as noted at http://nw.com/nw/WWW/software/whois.html) I'll take a look at the rwhois source and at your source also. I don't need to link this whois server to anyone else. What I'm doing is setting up a database of contact information for my customers that have leased-lines or other dedicated connections, or that have websites hosted here. The idea is to facilitate fighting abuse, and to give accurate contact info for other reasons... because, well, we all know how accurate the ARIN/RIPE/APNIC databases are... :) I also plan on eventually using this whois server as an easy way to find contact information for people working here. -- North Shore Technologies, Cleveland, OH http://NorthShoreTechnologies.net Steve Sobol, BOFH - President, Chief Website Architect and Janitor Spammers and Net-abusers: Don't bother asking me for service.
