Works Here, Source?

It's working here in a quick test. Nicely done. Could you please post the source code as well?

Yep. Smile I mirrored a copy of the original code on GitHub. While we're talking about it, do you want admin permissions to the PortableApps GitHub organization? (Just so you don't send me a cease and descist letter anytime soon. ;))

Email

Funnily enough, I just emailed you about that. As I noticed /portableapps was taken a few days ago when I set up my github account in preparation to transition some of the PA.c assets there to (hopefully) get more people interested/involved. Great minds and all. Smile

The issue I patched was

The issue I patched was unrelated to timeout. Can you download paping and ping the following servers on port 43 for me? They're all .com whois servers.

paping whois.enom.com -p 43 -c 3
paping whois.markmonitor.com -p 43 -c 3
paping whois.iana.org -p 43 -c 3
paping whois.ename.com -p 43 -c 3

Edit: Use paping since Windows can't ping specific ports.

If the paping x86 binary

If the paping x86 binary isn't reaching those servers, then it looks like a network problem unique to your end. What's the output of the x86 binary?

LL I have tried was whodat

as previously had ussed an internal program but due t chenges in google it was never updated

Found whodat here and that is all I have used

as it sat on my portable drive and was convient to use with some other tools I use

Prefer to use something in a windows gui and not in a dos command

Well, my question's purpose

Well, my question's purpose wasn't to provide alternative software. I was curious to know if other WHOIS utilities are able to access servers from your end.

understand

I am and always have been able to open from website as well as previous whodat. Also seems like if I time out 3 times fourth time it connects...odd and if it works for you and works for John then I say ignore me as maybe it all my end. I do not want to stand in way of progress. Nor do I want my stupidity to slow down progress. I appreciate what you have and have been doing.

Dozen In A Row

I can search a dozen in a row and they all come back with results within about 1 second. All .com domains, no IPs.

Maybe that is issue

I search by ip addresses such as
185.17.25.219
68.71.52.97
37.59.222.3

May the fault has been me all along in not using program the way it was intended?

ok

I have to click search 3 times and get the result on third time after 2 time outs. Perhaps it is TWC in Maine?

If you happy I happy and will cease to say anything.

All other aspects of computer are flawless. I can access whois .arin.net and not have nay issues ffrom web page.

So must be something screwy in my computer and Wndows 8.1

Nonsense. You're helping John and I by testing this app. Thank you. Smile

WHOIS utilities operate on TCP port 43. Going through a website like whois.arin.net would work fine since you're on TCP port 80. If you had a chance to try the Nirsoft utility, and it works, that means your network is fine. I'm trying to rule out the your network/TWC/antivirus as the issue by bringing in a second app that does the same thing to see if it works.

Check

Your IRC log from me sent links to screencasts of the issue as seen on my system, it is not that it is not working, just slow. I can live with slow as opposed to No

Editted: Ran the Nirsoft one after figuring how to actually accomplish that.

Appears to work ok. John has results in email to him as brain cramped and ran this site lol

Got It

I got it and saw what you meant. I just fired up my Win 8.1 laptop and can't reproduce it there, either. All 3 IPs you pasted above work fine.

Any chance it's an antivirus or software firewall interfering?

Problem is O may have to permit it thru the FW and AV which sort of kill portableness For me ok But would hate to run system bare especially given when and how I use will get back to you

Edit: Second test run John link to No AV No FW in email hope this clears it up Smile

Update still was not working

then I clicked search repeatedly and if came back with info on a whois of my ip maybe it just the whois servers acting up?
