What does Tor have to do with the jwhois response to a he.net IPv6 address? I
don't run whois queries through Tor.
The two-netblock case is, for example, 22.214.171.124. Running whois or jwhois
on it returns this:
Asia Pacific Network Information Centre APNIC-ERX-153 (NET-153-0-0-0-0)
126.96.36.199 - 188.8.131.52
Villanova University VILLANOVA (NET-153-104-0-0-1) 184.108.40.206 -
Running "jwhois NET-153-104-0-0-1" returns useful information. Running "whois
NET-153-104-0-0-1" on DFly returns no match. There is a trick, which I knew
years ago and forgot because it's unobvious.
I have no idea what APNIC has to do with a university in Pennsylvania, which
is neither in Asia nor near the Pacific.
