Hi, i just realized that at least one of the URLs/links the RIPE-db software hands out seems to be outdated (since the RIPE website redesign?) Someone asked me about an error reply he received while trying to query the db and he found this in an ERROR:201 response : % Sorry, access from your host has been permanently % denied because of a repeated excessive querying. % Please see http://www.ripe.net/db/err201.html <---- % for more information. ...which is 404 Just a heads up. Probably there are more outdated links, we/the NCC might want to check that. I can't reproduce this since i have no blocked IP myself (that i know of), so there is a chance the other person is doing something wrong or got a weird whois client and this is not a problem in the database texts. . o O(and if i'm a total dork than those responses are hardcoded in the client) (P.S.: We're not sure why his IP(v6) address is blocked, but that's a different story) -- Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Kind Regards Sascha Lenz [SLZ-RIPE] Senior System- & Network Architect
