ACSP Suggestion 2007.30: ARIN WHOIS Should be Available on v6
Author: Edward Lewis
Submitted On: 28 September 2007
Description: ARIN’s WhoIs (whois.arin.net) should be available via IPv6. I’m prompted to make this suggestion by seeing a note on
http://www.civil-tongue.net/clusterf/wiki/Administrative%20Infrastructure under “WhoIs” saying only RIPE’s server is available on v6.
Status: Completed Updated: 04 October 2007

ARIN’s web-based WHOIS (available at www.arin.net/whois) is currently and has been served over IPv6 for several years. ARIN’s WHOIS is not provided over IPv6 via port 43 at this time, though we are looking to provide it by the end of the year.
Suggestion 2007.30 is now closed.
