The current URL states it's accessible via HTTP however this doesn't seem to be working at the moment. You can access it via FTP though:

I can only see it being slow if you're trying to do a whois on a domain that has a slow whois server. This whois program queries the proper whois servers (rather than you having to know them yourself) which makes it a bit slower, but it is about a million times better than the whois program you think you want.

This client takes an insane amount of time to do whois
queries. I've tried 4.6.2 and 4.6.3. I'm wondering where I
find the 'normal' whois client that responds almost
immediately. Any ideas on how to fix this problem or where
to find the 'normal' whois client?

Wouldn't be without it...
This prog is an absolute lifesaver. I attempted to scan *.au host records for ages before I found this in 2000; kudos to the developer.

RedHat 7.1 package
I built RedHat RPM packages for whois.
Source and i386 binary packages are at:

ftp://dan.drydog.com/pub/swhoisd/
or

Also there is Swhoisd, Simple Whois Daemon.

This is a little gem
Since I daily try to contact the admins responsible for
systems scanning our hosts, this little whois vastly
simplifies my life.
