For those not on the arin-announce mailing list, they just notified
everyone  (notice is copied below) about implimenting a new routing registry
server recently.

In addition, I got followup confirmation from Jon Worley at ARIN that their
routing registry is now RFC4012 compliant, so now you can do route6/inet6num
records with them (hence this post in ipv6-ops).

ARIN has released a new Routing Registry server. The new server is
available at (port 43) for whois queries and (port 4444) for mirroring the ARIN data. The changes
made include:
     - Filtering out e-mail addresses and regular expressions from whois
       query replies
     - Support for common whois client flags
     - Separation of mirroring and whois components

For a list of instructions on querying, use the following command:
     whois -h HELP

These changes are for the server side only. Registering objects in
ARIN's Routing Registry will continue to be processed as they are today.

An evaluation period will be running from today through 31 July
2006. The evaluation period provides the community the opportunity to
explore the use of the new server, and modify any scripts in use that
may depend upon it. After the evaluation period has ended,
ports will resolve to the new server for whois queries and mirroring.

Please send any feedback you may have to hostmaster at
