Testing GEOIP

Testing GEOIP

Hi,

Any online tools to test whether Geo IP method of Metamod Pro is working? e.g. I want to simulate coming from China?

Re: Testing GEOIP

Good question. You can try to find some web proxy services in the country that you want to test in. Another way is to use the IP address override feature in MetaMod – but the trick is that you have to find an IP address in the country in question. I was doing this myself earlier today as I needed to test out something from a city in Spain. So I searched for some businesses with the name of that city, then did a lookup of their IP addresses, then fed these into the tester on the front page of www.maxmind.com until one came up in the right city (lots of sites are hosted in the USA, but some are hosted locally!). Then you can use that IP address in the override box in MetaMod.

Hope that helps,
Stephen
