Incorrect names being used for WHOIS servers

Under Tools->Scripted Action->By IP address, the WHOIS servers are being
displayed incorrectly. All of mine say HASH(0x…) where … is a
hexidecimal number. If I use Tools->Lookup, I correctly see the WHOIS
servers’ names. I fixed this in my copy by copying the code from
RTIR/Tools/Lookup.html and putting it in RTIR/Tools/ScriptedAction.html.
It worked fine after that. :slight_smile:

Also, what is the difference in FriendlyName and the $WhoisNames
(beautified hostnames)?

WhoisNames was old and unused. I’ve yanked it from the source.

I just noticed something else. When I navigate to RTIR’s Tools->Lookup page, the
title says “Lookup ‘’ using server whois.cyberabuse.org”. Maybe the page should
check if it is actually looking something up before it displays the quotes and
it shouldn’t just display the first WHOIS server it sees. Might change to
"WHOIS/Traceroute Lookup" or something when nothing is being looked up at the
time… dunno, whatever you think. :slight_smile:

Thanks again for such a wonderful tool!
