So I use shell alot while I'm at work. While I don't (yet) have root access to our servers, I am stuck using my dedicated servers shell to run commands (easier for me). Weird thing is, when I run a WHOIS search, 4/10 times it will come back with a domain name not found / registered, yet when I log onto network-tools.com it shows the correct information / registrar information. Any ways to add WHOIS hosts / search engines to the whois function of servers? Are there any other kind of network tools that are useful in the webhosting industry to trouble shoot connections, etc etc?
