    You must be more specific! What do you mean by "This is not enough" What is blocked? Can you provide some log entries? "Whois" may use port 4321 and port 43, but the log will tell you...

    i need the command line to port explorer's whois utility ..the plug LookatThisIP.dll requires a command to the executable,url
    like if i add "C:\Program Files\Port Explorer\portexplorer.exe" and rightclick entry in the LOG and choose Look at this IP(the plugin) it runs port explorer

    pe only uses a single exe but has many utlitity's like the whois

    fred22,
    Not sure if this is PE problem or a LNS problem...
    Maybe another PE user can help :)

    I always use the "Try and Error" Method. Run the command line with PE and see what LnS blocks. Then allow the specific apps/ports and see if it works....

    Good luck,
    Thomas :)

    There's no command line parameter to invoke the Whois utility straight away, but it can be accessed simply by pressing Ctrl+W

    Best regards,
    Wayne

    We'll be adding Whois.exe to the Freeware Console Tools collection soon, it'll basically be a port of the Port Explorer version
