How to set Geo-location of an IP address
Posted on 2009-04-21
Hi! I'm wondering how to set the geo-location of an IP address as well as the ISP name.
I had always presumed this was determined by the 'OrgName' and the data that follows it. I then thought it was 'CustName' and following data. But now I'm not sure.
For example, I have 2 ARIN subnets. Both are registered to the same ISP, 'OrgName', in same country ('country A'). Both have been reassigned to 'CustName' in another country ('country B').
Now, when I do a geoIP lookup for an IP from one subnet, I get ISP 'CustName' from city in 'country B'. When I do a geoIP lookup for an IP from the other subnet I get ISP 'OrgName' from city in 'country A'.
I don't really understand why. Hope someone can shed some light on this.
