Whois and IP Resolution Fail When Run Behind Firewall or Proxy

When you run Whois Organizations and Lookup IP addresses in the import module, little or no information is returned.


One possible cause is that you are trying to run either of these two features from behind a Proxy server or a firewall. Usage Analyst does not support running either IP resolution or Whois Organizations unless directly connected to the internet.


To work around this problem:

  • Establish a direct connection to the Internet by a LAN or dial-up connection.
