GeoIP



  • HI, I would like to know the difference between the two country listings in Geo ip of pfBlocker.
    Example: Japan(1861060) JP(4641) and Japan(1861060) JP_rep(49).
    What does the rep stand for.

  • the answer is included on the infosite What new in GeoIP2, that is linked on the geoip-tab:

    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.

    means the japan_rep are ips outside japan but are used for example by japanese military bases.



  • Thank you for the link and explanation.
