Dear all, This is to notify you of the further steps in the development of the new RIPE Database. Today we have put online the next version of the reimplemented whois server. It is running on the machine reimp.ripe.net on port 43. This server is running as a near real-time mirror client, mirroring the current RIPE database. Please have a look and let us know if you find anything wrong. The results of the queries are supposed to match the results of the queries from our production server. Please note that the access control mechanism may prevent you from obtaining excessive contact information. Please contact <ripe-dbm at ripe.net> if the limit turns out to be too small for your tests. Please send your comments and bug reports to <db-beta at ripe.net> mailing list. To subscribe to this list send a message to <majordomo at ripe.net> with the line: subscribe db-beta in the body of your letter. This is a moderated mailing list so some delays in subscription are possible. The source code is also being released. It can be found at our ftp site: ftp://ftp.ripe.net/ripe/dbase/reimp/RIP-0.2.0beta2.tar.gz The instructions for installing the software and loading the database can be found in the file INSTALL in the main directory. Best regards, Daniele Arena ____________________________ RIPE Database Administration.
