    Have you looked at the Ts&Cs at http://www.networksolutions.com/cgi-bin/whois/whois<BR><BR>You seem to wanting to perform an automated whois lookup without having any authority to do so?<BR><BR>Consider if you had setup a database driven website, would you really want anybody to able to access your database?<BR><BR>Of course if you have arranged with them for a username and password then that&#039;s different...<BR><BR>Cheers<BR>Tim
