Why is this braking down the parser?


Recommended Posts

Can anyone explain why this IP is screwing up the parser?

Can't duplicate it by using just the URL in the single-line mode. The Tracking URL of the actual spam parse would help here.

Error states that there was a problem in making a call / connection to ARIN ... From this end, anything could have happened.

But, it's a pretty odd set of data that gets returned ...

whois -h whois.arin.net ...

OK, interesting ... ARIN worked just fine when I was looking up your stuff ... However, just tried looking up another IP and got this response (probably what the parser was choking on) ...

I see, they are blocking the check... I put the same spam e-mail through the parser again and came up with something totally different. It's only when you look at the tracking details that the aol address is even mentioned:
