[DNS] "all systems are functional" ?

Adrian,

	Yes, One of the requirements was to provide a "high-uptime whois
server" and, yes this is still the case, if you try changing the host
name to "whois.ausregistry.net.au" you will find connecting to our whois
service is not a problem.

Thanks

The UNIX philosophy basically involves giving you enough rope to hang
yourself.  And then a couple of feet more, just to be sure.

Hi,

On the ausregistry.net website, it says "all systems are functional",
yet

adrian&#167;styx: whois -h whois.ausregistry.net mydsl.com.au
whois: connect(): Connection refused

Now, if I remember right, part of the registry tender requirements were
to run a high-uptime whois server. Is this still the case?
