197.x.x.x is Afrinic not Arin

Recommended Posts

The entire 197.x.x.x range is allocated by Afrinic (http://www.iana.org/assignments/ipv4-address-space/ipv4-address-space.xml), but Spamcop is checking Arin's whois and attempting to report to Afrinic instead of looking up the contacts in Afrinic's whois.

The parser says:

"whois[at]whois.arin.net" (Getting contact from whois.arin.net )

And whois.afrinic.net says:
