What is you're after? A name? Of whom? You're not going to be able get the name of the person using the IP unless they actually own the IP, which they probably won't. If you mean the host name you can use the gethostbyaddr function of PHP. If you mean the IP owner information you'll need to connect to the whois server of whoever administers that IP block on port 43 and send the IP followed by a newline then read whatever it sends back. I think you may just be able to use whois.arin.net for any IP and if it's not an IP in ARIN's jurisdiction it'll tell you what server to connect to instead. It just requires a bit of parsing the plain text to get the information into a useable form.

Geeze, newb, please give google a try first next time:

http://www.google.ca/search?q=mambo+whois

If you had, you would have seen imediately that there's a few out there, including:

http://mamboxchange.com/projects/moslookup/

http://www.mamboportal.com/content/view/926/2/

It looks like there's others, but you're going to have to do *some* of the work. ;)

Also, if you view the source of dnsstuff, and play with it a bit, you can get the following HTML out. Put it into a blank module or content page and it should work for you.

<!-- Search Whois -->

<FORM METHOD=GET ACTION="http://www.dnsstuff.com/tools/whois.ch"><INPUT TYPE=text NAME=ip SIZE=20> <INPUT TYPE=submit VALUE="Whois Search"></FORM>

<!-- Search Whois -->

Hope that helps.
