Determining GeoLocation Of EC2 Instance
Posted on 2012-03-23
We've few Amazon EC2 instances running in different regions. All instances are assigned with elastic IP addresses. We could remote into them using these IPs with no issues.
When we do an IP lookup (IP2Location.com for example) the results show same location, that is "Seattle, WA, US" despite the fact that these instances are running two different regions (East & West).
Tracert is not really helping much as to determining the locations of our instances. Question is how do we determine the location of EC2 instance with the help of elastic ip addresses?
