   As Randal pointed out to me, the current version of 'whois' tries to
identiry the proper whois server on its own and doesn't like the assistance
on the command line. Typing only 'whois <IPaddress>' works as intended.

   It's on the man page, but I didn't think to look there as I've been using
the tool for so long I assumed I knew the syntax.
