Michael –

Thanks for the feedback.

Can I ask that you submit the proposal, regarding making Whois inaccuracy tickets publicly available, through ARIN’s Consultation and Suggestion Process, https://www.arin.net/participate/acsp/acsp.html ?

This is the preferred method for non-policy suggestions to ARIN.

Regarding the RWhois item you mention, ARIN staff are working with the organization to correct the issue.  Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

Best Regards,

Nate Davis

Our team has posted several cases following the prescribed procedures, and it would be helpful if ARIN would make tickets related to this publicly available, so the both the submitter, and the public have a transparent way to see that these types of issues are followed up on, or that some process is in place.

Otherwise, the public will not continue to assist ARIN to help clean up this data.

For instance:


NetRange: -
NetName:        RRMA
NetHandle:      NET-174-96-0-0-1
Parent:         NET174 (NET-174-0-0-0-0)
NetType:        Direct Allocation
Organization:   Time Warner Cable Internet LLC (RRMA)

# If you see inaccuracies in the results, please report at

Found a referral to ipmt.rr.com:4321.

connect: Connection refused

We are seeing more and more cases of references to 'rwhois' servers that have fallen off line, got broken, forgotten or simply do not exist.

Those records of course should be updated.. (More importantly, the services should be available)

Are there any initiatives to make inaccuracy reports more transparent?
This would help greatly in helping ARIN deal with this issue.
