I am working on setting up internet facing relays and wanting to know the kinds of information I can gather regarding clients.
Iâ€™ve found a website http://whatismyipaddress.com/ip/x.x.x.x which will give me all kinds of geolocation information about the public ip address a client is connecting from.
Do we have any prebuilt solutions for gathering this kind of information? If not I was thinking of creating a fixlet that will “scrape” this website for this additional information and store it as an ini file on the local systemâ€¦ any thoughts?
i’ve talked with a few people who provided helpful links:
Peter: A company called MaxMind has Geolocation databases that you can download. http://www.maxmind.com/app/geolitecity
anybody else have any other ideas regarding useful information we can pull from internet clients?
