Whois is used to display ownership information for an IP address or domain name. A major use for this is to determine the source of requests appearing in the firewall or Detection System logs. This can assist in the identification of malicious hosts.
|1.||Go to the System > Diagnostics > Whois page.|
|2.||Enter an IP address or domain name that you wish to lookup in the IP addresses or domain name field.|
|3.||Click Run. The output of Whois is as it would be if it were run directly by the root user from the console of the Smoothwall.|
