    Hello,

    I noticed a problem with the plugin GeoIP City. When I make DNS resolution, the resolution of the city is not done any more.

    82.104.51.61 Rome
    193.8.23.10 Geneva
    209.237.238.174 San Francisco
    65.54.164.84 Redmond
    24.116.198.146 Aransas Pass
    80.58.24.107 Madrid
    81.62.26.251 Zrich
    69.115.162.193 Hicksville
    62.203.244.140 Zrich

    • Do you mean if you make a DNS resolution by your web server or by awstats ?

        All is in Awstats.

        I have load the plugin GeoIP City and if I enable the option DNS lookup the plugin GeoIP City won't find any cities any more.

        I think when DNS lookup is enable Awstats make DNS lookup first and then the plugin GeoIP City with this new DNS resolution. So the plugin don't work because the database of GeoIP City contains only the IP adress and not the DNS name.

        Awstats make : IP client -> DNS resolution -> Plugin GeoIP City

        Awstats should make this :
        IP client -> DNS resolution
        IP client -> Plugin GeoIP City

        Thanks
        Regards

         
    • I am not sure but I think that plugins provided with last stable version 6.3 fix this.
