Wrong Geo location

L1 Bithead

Hello, couple times we had issue with wrong geolocation. It is very interesting how PaloAlto create ip<->location database.

example: 

from FW:

show location ip 46.8.61.78

46.8.61.78
Czech Republic

 

regarding https://knowledgebase.paloaltonetworks.com/KCSArticleDetail?id=kA10g000000PPtECAW

and any other geolocation service it is russian address. Can someone higlight why at Palo Alto it is categorized as Czech ?

 

regards,

Tomek

Hello,

They get their updates from ARIN if I recall correctly. They are sometimes out of date. You can open a TAC case and let them know.

Hmm, does not look like. Arin shows Moscow, as far as i remember still in Russia not Czech 🙂

Hello Tomek,

I would create a support case and have them research internally and correct it so they can push out the changes to all customers.

 

Regards,
