This is a very old version of NicInfo, and it is attempting to query rdappilot.arin.net<http://rdappilot.arin.net> which is no longer in service. (RDAP is in production and so the pilot program ended).

You can find the latest version, 1.1.1, here:

The configs and cache structure changed between 0.2.0 and 1.1.1, so you might also want to erase your .NicInfo directory.
Alternatively, nicinfo —reset should work as well.

Let me know if you have any further issues.

Puzzled, I joined this mail list...(noting that https://www.arin.net/knowledge/rdap.pdf has broken links in it).

https://rdap.arin.net/bootstrap and https://rdap.arin.net/registry are the base URLs for RDAP queries. We provide the information for people using curl, writing their own scrips and/or clients, or needing it for other reasons. Appending an RDAP query to them will yield results.

For example: curl -L -v https://rdap.arin.net/bootstrap/ip/

I hope that helps.
