You can try checking the IIS logs and check for the Device= xxx.

There you will notice an IP range. From that range, search and see to which operator it belongs :)

Hope this helps.

First get the IIS logs, in this case the HTTP ones.
Then download "Windows Grep" and run it against the folder.
Search by the user name :)

This will return the list of connections done by the user.

Get the Ip's per connection, in Excel and create a report.

After this, search the weba nd try to find the "area" where those IP's can be accessed.

Cheers.

That's a bit harder !!

But you can check here :
IP Address Locator - Enter an IP address to find its location - Lookup Country Region City etc
http://www.geobytes.com/IpLocator.htm

Otherwise, you may be stucked with "the ISP" and, if 3G access, he can be anyhwere :)

Get it ?

Cheers.
