RWhois is an Internet directory access protocol, defined in RFC1714 [1] and RFC2167 [3]. This document describes a format for an RWhois Uniform Resource Locator (URL) that will allow Internet clients to have direct access to the RWhois protocol. An RWhois URL will represent a single query to an RWhois server.
