Is this feasible? Can I find out which distro is used to host specific webpages? Whois doesn't have info for this.
According to the whois man page:
If the /etc/whois.conf configuration file exists, it will be consulted to find a server before applying the normal rules.
However, 'whois' in Slackware x86_64 14.1 isn't doing that, as confirmed by 'ls -lu /etc/whois.conf'.
The Slackware whois source package clearly references /etc/whois.conf, but that name doesn't show
Hello, when i tried to get whois on an .com domain, it automatically used tucows whois, it appears it cant connect that server, please how can i fix it, so it dont fail or use another server?
