So I'm looking at my sent traffic in
iftop and I'm connected to an IP I don't recognise and I'm sending quite a bit of traffic their way. I'd like to work out where in the world this IP goes to.
Online I've been running whois queries against IP addresses for a long time but I don't think I've ever been able to get it to work for IP addresses. Is there some trick to making the
whois command handle IPs too?
Here's what I'm doing:
oli@bert:~$ whois 126.96.36.199 No whois server is known for this kind of object.
