Well,

As you wan see, there are some problems in country origin reporting. (using
GeoIPFree).

Host are correctly resolved, but country code seems to have some pbs and origin
errors.

The other problem I had was to correctly extract the URL and Querystyring from
the IIS Log file. Because URL and querystring are separated by a space (as IIS
consider them as 2 separated parameters. So, without this tip, all result from the
analyse were considered as "non viewable results" : 999 return code.

To solve this problem, I had to change de querystring separator "?;" by default
by "?; " (adding a space char). With that modification, results are reported
correctly.

But no answer to resolve the country code problem.

I've found nothing about a such bug on the awstats' forums. So I request your help
to resolve this one.

I've send you the logfile used to obtain this results (ex040124.log) and the config
file used (awstats012004.www.conf), both zipped in attachment.zip

You can answer me at my sender adress.

Thank you for your great job.

    This means you used the Geo::IPfree perl module provided by
    activestate. This one is corrupted and bugged.

    You must reinstall the perl module Geo::IPfree after downloaded
    it from another source (www.cpan.org for example).

    Right, I've uninstalled the bad one and reinstalled the correct
    module from updated from
    http://search.cpan.org/~gmpassos/Geo-IPfree-0.2/

    I'll report if the generated stats are better or not.
