My RT_SiteConfig.pm:

Set($whois, {
    6 => {
Host=> "whois.nic.uk",
FriendlyName => "Nominet",
1 => {
Host=> "whois.iana.org",
FriendlyName => "IANA",
5 => {
Host=> "whois.ripe.net",
FriendlyName => "RIPE",
2 => {
Host=> "whois.internic.net",
FriendlyName => "INTERNIC",
3 => {
Host=> "whois.arin.net",
FriendlyName => "ARIN",
} );

The system configuration page is showing the above items under site config.

It is also showing as RTIR Core config, but without my additional whois server.

It should work just fine with regular whois servers. How does config look like? Have you checked system configuration page make sure config changes are active?
