"Should be shipped with Windows"

November 04, 2010  |  By chance2now

2010-11-04 10:39:54  |  By chance2now

 |  Version: Wwhois 2.1

Pros

Works exactly like a whois command should

Cons

Should include a GUI version as well as the command line version

Summary

Why doesn't Windows ship with a whois command? It has nslookup and traceroute (tracert). If MS wanted to license a whois command to include, this would be a great choice.

"Perfect. Should be in the Windows distro."

April 30, 2009  |  By XXPepper

 |  Version: Wwhois 2.1

Pros

It works, does what it's supposed to.

Cons

Didn't find any.

Summary

Does what you expect when you go to the Windows cmd box and type "whois". If you never do that, then you don't need this. If you do type that and always get surprised when nothing happens.... you want this. Thanks to the kind folks who put it here.

 |  Version: Wwhois 2.1

Pros

It's command line. So, it's quick and ready to use anywhere you are.

Cons

The whois servers list is closed. It would be nice if I could add new servers as soon as they appear.
