Is anybody having trouble with "Whois" searches?
Have the methods changed?

Perhaps it's my browser?
I'm getting a pop-up and then a redirect to another page, rather than results.

The pop-up:
Security Warning
Although this page is encrypted, the information you have entered is to be sent over an un-encrypted connection.

I realize there are other tools for Whois searches, however I'd rather use ARIN.

Thanks in advance.

I guess they have changed their query structure.
I use a tiny program to check whois IPs and lately I get the following from Arin :

#
# Query terms are ambiguous. The query is assumed to be:
# "n 207.46.204.190"
#
# Use "?" to get help.
#

#
# The following results may also be obtained via:
# http: //whois.arin.net/rest/nets;q=207.46.204.190?showDetails=true&showARIN=false
#

then it adds all the usual information.
I'm sure you recognize the IP. ;o)

That looks like your browser security settings. Try changing your setting to allow more moderate restrictions.

I'm not having any issues with ARIN Whois and haven't noticed any changes.

I found this a week or so ago. Very annoying. Thank you Arin.

The local (Windows) copy of Sam Spade, which I've been using forever, no longer works on Arin.

The Arin web site's whois is now less helpful than ever - doesn't even say which country the IP range belongs to without chasing pages.

I use Linux Network Tools as well but that is flawed - cannot handle a lot of the new ranges such as 109/8 and dies when accessing lacnic.

Robtex has screwed up their once-simple web site responses (again).

Instead of using a single local tool I now need several NIC web sites open.

The world approaches Chaos. :(

DNSSTUFF adds a line that states they are using 27 day old data. I.'m sure there'll be a time frame in which it will return nothing, same as the rest.

"Try changing your setting to allow more moderate restrictions. "

keyplr, my FF had one setting, which I disabled and it made no difference, even after clearing cache.

Also tried my old IE 6., with same result.

Thanks, that's much more useful! :)

Anyone know how to change Windows Sam Spade and Linux Network Tools to use it? And why do they use the new url instead of the presumably pre-programmed one?

No, its not the browser, its the new site/form. It's wrong because you are on a secure page and the form action points to a non-secure.

In any case I don't get any results for any of the queries I checked so use another service or the old one as mentioned.
