Your host probably does not allow the feature that it requires to use...I'm not sure though.
Check with your host.
I did a bit of investigation on this:
If I click an IP address in viewonline it does a dns lookup correctly
If I click an IP address in acp it does a dns lookup correctly
If I click the whois link in viewonline it shows a page with no info, just the whois title and footer
If I click the whois link in acp it shows a page with the dns lookup info and footer but no whois info
My host doesn't allow xmlrpc, is this the problem?
