Hi Hakan, I wasn't very clear on this at the RIPE-meeting; sorry for that. You can check for the next free handle (using your name as example) with something like: finger handle.hh at whois.ripe.net Which should give back something like: First free handle: HH19-RIPE Note that this does NOT 'reserve' HH19-RIPE, as discussed in the meeting. This works with sunos 4.1.3 finger, BSDI 1.1 and 2.0 finger. Hope this helps, Geert Jan (copied in local-ir since more people are probably interested; I'll make something better as soon as I have some spare cycles) ---- On Mon, 30 Jan 1995 14:47:12 +0100 Hakan Hansson wrote: > I can't get the finger command in my client to work: > % finger hh handle at whois.ripe.net > (as suggested at the RIPE meeting) > ... using the finger client included in SUNOS 4.1.3.
