NAME ^

Apache2::GeoIP - Look up country by IP Address

IP ADDRESS TO COUNTRY DATABASES ^

Free monthly updates to the database are available from

  http://www.maxmind.com/download/geoip/database/

This free database is similar to the database contained in IP::Country, as well as many paid databases. It uses ARIN, RIPE, APNIC, and LACNIC whois to obtain the IP->Country mappings.

For Win32 users, the GeoIP.dat database file is expected to reside in the /Program Files/GeoIP/ directory.

If you require greater accuracy, MaxMind offers a Premium database on a paid subscription basis.

MAILING LISTS AND CVS ^
