I think Eurpoe = RIPE NIC/whois servers...


I tried a lookup with the ".fi" extention, with no success, but drop the
fi ext:
whois -h whois.ripe.net kauhava

Even the RIPE folks would not take it with the .fi, but the block / range
does match with the host name in tyour header:


inetnum: -
netname:      SYO
descr:        Suomen Yrittajaopisto is a business school
descr:        in Kauhava.
country:      FI
admin-c:      TS20529-RIPE
tech-c:       JK24-RIPE
mnt-by:       VLP-VLT-MNT
status:       ASSIGNED PA
notify:       johan.kaustinen@finnet.fi
changed:      borje.linden@finnet.fi 20010904
source:       RIPE

also, drop the "fi" and you get:
inetnum: -
netname:      Kauhava
descr:        Kauhava is a town in the Vaasa area.
country:      FI
admin-c:      RH15701-RIPE
tech-c:       JK24-RIPE
mnt-by:       VLP-VLT-MNT

notify:       johan.kaustinen@finnet.fi
changed:      borje.linden@finnet.fi 20010827
source:       RIPE

Then IN ADDR ARPA form shows something else:

person:       Johan Kaustinen
