No Longer Functional

It would seem it's simply no longer functional. The whois server it accesses probably no longer allows direct queries.

Same

I did the same. I think it's hitting whois.arin.net and that's not giving the results it used to. We could find something similar and recompile. It's just C++ and (I think) Qt

been a long time

since I toyed in C++ like back in 90's on my TU99/4A not sure if we could use anything out of here http://projects.arin.net/ or not to make/create/modify anything John. I know for one I would love to see something like Whodat up again. Just out of curiousity were many downloads of it? I know it is sort of a niche app
