PfBlockerNG GeoIP lists show multiple lines for each country
This might be normal behavior but I wanted to have confirmation either way.
On my pfsense system, the country selection tables for ipv4 (pfBlockerNG latest version) show 2 entries for pretty much each country. They seem to be different from each other as the first one has always a larger number between parenthesis than the second. Additionally, the second entry always has the suffix _rep.
Is this normal behavior or did I mess up something?
I am noticing that in the ipv6 tables there is only one entry for each country.
Thanks in advance for any info.
Here are the release notes for 2.1.1:
What new in GeoIP2
_rep is only available for IPv4 from MaxMind… The Represented IPs are a new feature with limited documentation from MaxMind.

Quoting the MaxMind doc:
Country, Registered Country, and Represented Country
We now distinguish between several types of country data. The country is the country where the IP address is located. The registered_country is the country in which the IP is registered. These two may differ in some cases.
Finally, we also include a represented_country key for some records. This is used when the IP address belongs to something like a military base. The represented_country is the country that the base represents. This can be useful for managing content licensing, among other uses.
