Hi, I'm experiencing a connection bug which seems to be described here: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=542148 And fixed with the following patch: --- a/src/utils.c +++ b/src/utils.c @@ -288,7 +288,7 @@ make_connect(const char *host, int port) retlen = sizeof(retval); error = getsockopt(sockfd, SOL_SOCKET, SO_ERROR, &retval, &retlen); - if (error < 0 || retval) + if (error == 0 && !retval) { break; }

The sources are looking for a 'whois' entry in /etc/services, which does not exist on my system. I had to patch it to look for nicname instead. Here's the revised jwhois.patch I came up with: --- src/dns.c~ 2007-06-25 23:58:38.000000000 -0700 +++ src/dns.c 2016-06-04 16:20:19.644865127 -0700 @@ -113,12 +113,13 @@ lookup_host_addrinfo(struct addrinfo **res, const char *host, int port) { struct addrinfo hints; - char ascport[10] = "whois"; + char ascport[10] = "nicname"; int error; memset(&hints, 0, sizeof(hints)); hints.ai_family = PF_UNSPEC; + hints.ai_flags = AI_ADDRCONFIG; hints.ai_socktype = SOCK_STREAM; if (port) sprintf(ascport, "%9.9d", port);
