Jwhois for Windows

Jwhois: client for the whois service




JWHOIS is an Internet Whois client that contains an extensible configuration file which defines its operation. The client supports queries to foreign hosts either through the RFC 954 - NICNAME/WHOIS protocol, the RFC 2167 - Referral Whois 1.5 protocol, or HTTP using an external browser.

Upon execution, JWHOIS searches through the its configuration to find the most specific whois server to query. Depending upon the reply from that whois server, JWHOIS can assume the query was successfull and display the result to the user, or optionally redirect the query to another server to find more specific information.




If you download the Setup program of the package, any requirements for running applications, such as dynamic link libraries (DLL's) from the dependencies as listed below under Requirements, are already included. If you download the package as Zip files, then you must download and install the dependencies zip file yourself. Developer files (header files and libraries) from other packages are however not included; so if you wish to develop your own applications, you must separately install the required packages.
