Bad GEO IP Data?
« on: August 06, 2022, 03:46:17 AM »

Two of my tunnels are suddenly showing up as Cairo, Egypt on Google and many other Geo IP databases. I have had those tunnels setup for a long time and this is the first time it happens. Tunnel is connected to VA (US).

GeoIP data belong to third parties; not HEs problem, nor can HE do anything about it.

Visit the different GeoIP services on the net and use their contact form to submit corrected geolocation information for your prefixes. Usually they will correct it with the next database update.
