Detecting VPN IPs

Post by Cloudwalker »

When you do a search on an IP address and it comes up as "Corporate", does that means its a VPN?

How do you tell if an IP address is a VPN?

No, "corporate" does not mean VPN. It has to do with the type of connection... dialup, broadband, wireless, corporate (T1, T3, etc)

There is no easy way to tell the difference between a VPN, proxy, or corporate gateway.
