WhoIs Needed
« on: September 23, 2007, 09:27:35 PM »
when anybody visits my hfs site i wanna know who is it...
i copy his ip, then go to http://www.chatter.ru/whois.php & paste this ip into the form...
but that all takes a long time...
rejetto, can u make built-in WHOIS in hfs? :)
as example:
it wanna be cool if i can select IP & press right mouse button & select "WhoIs" option & then it opens a modal dialog which show me whois information.  ;D

+1 for whois ;D
Having a built in whois would be an allot better idea then having address to name in the log.

reverse dns , which is what you are talking about, is in the to-do list.

also an option would be cool to find out more for the ip, just a link that fires the ip through the arin whois search would do the trick.

well, the reverse dns is in doubt because doing it for every IP is a problem.
doing it on request is not a problem.

Dear comrade,

I think you should think again about your needs for a Whois with every conection. 'Normal' private users have a IP that belongs to a service provider, an not even the information of the country where the conection comes must be true. For example, owner of the IP may be a company in Amsterdam, and the user sits in Spain! If you want to know if the conection comes from a government or security institution, donĀ“t believe that they use IP's in the gov's range!
So in every case, the information you can get will really be almost useless!
your computer has no brain - use your own !
