Reverse DNS lookup in the Visitors_v1.6 contribution


Recommended Posts

The reverse DNS lookup hasn't been working recently because dnsstuff.com seems to be down. I don't know if this is temporary or not. A workaround is to replace this line in admin/visitors.php

<td class="VisitorTableContent" valign="top"><a href="http://www.dnsstuff.com/tools/whois.ch?ip=<?php echo $visitors["browser_ip"]; ?>" target="_blank"><font color="#0000FF"><?php echo $visitors["browser_ip"]; ?></font></a></td>

with this line

<td class="VisitorTableContent" valign="top"><a href="http://ws.arin.net/cgi-bin/whois.pl?queryinput=<?php echo $visitors["browser_ip"]; ?>" target="_blank"><font color="#0000FF"><?php echo $visitors["browser_ip"]; ?></font></a></td>

If you or most of your customers are not in the part of the world covered by arin.net you may prefer to do something similar using lacnic.net, ripe.net, etc.

In olden times the men were made of iron and the ships were made of wood; now it's the other way around. :wink:
