Wrong geolocation

(1/1)

Amilto:
Hello !

Got this configuration working at home :

Name                                                                   Routed /64
tunnel624499.tunnel.tserv10.par1.ipv6.he.net   2001:470:1f13:1e6::/64

Everything is fine, from ping to web service at home in IPv6. BUT my geolocation in IPv6 is now USA while it should be France. Any way to fix this ?

Best regards and Thanks for All the Fish !
William

I don't think that's possible. HE already put the correct details with France as location. Check yourself:
https://dnschecker.org/ipv6-whois-lookup.php

Problem is that there are widely used 3rd party databases with wrong location information for your IP. Check the biggest:
https://www.iplocation.net/ip-lookup

As you can see, "IP2Location", "ipinfo.io", and "ipgeolocation.io" (still) report a wrong/old location. They _might_ pick it up automatically, but the best is probably to write to them and tell them the correct location of your prefix. That's how it worked for me.

Amilto:
Thanks for your answer.

By the way, 2001:470:1f13:1e6::/64 is located in USA according to https://dnschecker.org/ipv6-whois-lookup.php . Do they get the location from HE ? If so, then HE please fix this.

Best regards

Nothing for us to fix, we publish location data in our rwhois. If a 3rd party GeoIP service doesn't use what we publish, that is on them. We're not responsible for other ppl's products, like GeoIP databases.

Hey, you're welcome.

I think you're looking at the wrong section. What you see first is just the location for the whole ASN. The rwhois for your record is further down:
