This does not work for me: fw at deneb:~$ printf '%s\r\n' "-r 126.96.36.199" | nc whois.ripe.net 43 % This is the RIPE Database query service. % The objects are in RPSL format. % % The RIPE Database is subject to Terms and Conditions. % See http://www.ripe.net/db/support/db-terms-conditions.pdf %ERROR:201: access denied for 188.8.131.52 % % Queries from your IP address have passed the daily limit of controlled objects. % Access from your host has been temporarily denied. % For more information, see % http://www.ripe.net/data-tools/db/faq/faq-db/why-did-you-receive-the-error-201-access-denied % This query was served by the RIPE Database Query Service version 1.47.5 (WHOIS1) fw at deneb:~$ Before that, I managed to blow my entire daily quota with a single query, namely "-r r" (typo for "?", requesting help).
