Question about Whois Databases


Recommended Posts

Hi-

I received the following response after issuing an abuse report.

QUOTE

Hello,

Your original email was sent to an email address listed in the

ARIN Whois.

Please note that the IP address range you originally queried

is not registered in the ARIN database. Instead, you need to

search the RIPE NCC Whois Database via:

website: http://www.ripe.net/whois

or

whois client: whois.ripe.net

The RIPE NCC Whois Database contains records of IP addresses

allocated in the European, Middle Eastern, Central Asia and North Africa region.

For information on reporting spam and network abuse originating

from IP addresses in this region, please see the

FAQ "Reporting network abuse: spamming and hacking" at:

http://www.ripe.net/ripencc/faq/abuse.html

Please note that RIPE NCC is not an ISP. Nor is it empowered to

investigate complaints of spam or network abuse.

_____________________________________________________

THIS IS AN AUTOMATED RESPONSE

Please note, replies to this message will NOT be

read. If this email has not provided the

information you need, please refer to other RIPE NCC

contact addresses, which are described at:

http://www.ripe.net/ripencc/about/contact.html

Could someone suggest what could have been happening here? Unfortunately, I already deleted the parser report.

Did that response get sent to you at nnnnnnnn[at]reports.spamcop.net? If so then the report number (the nnnnnn part of the address) will let me track back and see where the lookup went wrong.

Ellen,

The response was sent to me by postman.ripe.net [193.0.0.199]. Would it help if I forward you the e-mail I received?

If you can copy/paste the whole thing back to me -- include full headers -- and remind me why you are sending it :-) Thanks
