IP Lookup Help

Post by mhc6629 » Tue Feb 26, 2013 6:24 pm

Hi there,

This IP address popped up today. My site says its from England, but then a WHOIS search located it in Korea.

IP: 46.20.119.198
Company: Peer 1 Network Enterprises Ltd.
Organization: P1SB-e848d94341b123ca3310755f755e93f6c6c

It looks like your UK location is correct. I've found that a couple of the who-is sites come up with duff locations, I got Lebanon from one today.

A trace route used 25 hops and it looked like some servers were struggling to locate a route. The last few hops were:
22 [216.187.115.118]
23 216.187.112.90
24 216.187.112.158
25 46.20.119.198

So it appears to have gone direct from the Peer 1 US server to the Peer-1 server in the UK.

Thanks!

It appears the IP has changed to one in Spain now. I'm really confused. This visitor is also not registering as a visitor to my site's internal stats.

Neither on that IP or the UK one can I see anywhere anything that suggests they are either VPN or proxies. What makes you think its the same person?

The IP tracker that I use says that the computer started @ the original address and is now using the one in Spain. It will tell me when a computer switches IP addresses. Any visits from this computer does not show up on my websites internal stats, which only happens when someone is accessing from a proxy. Hope that helps.

Seems then that there are proxies involved. I've used a number of proxies that do not get flagged as such by any of the the look up sites. Can't help more than that unfortunately.

Can proxies change the appearance of your OS and stuff? I'm only asking because I've never had a problem with people visiting from proxies and then I had an influx of web based proxies and now this random weird user. A computer with the exact same OS is doing the same thing today from the US, but it didn't register as the same computer, but once again didn't turn up in the internal tracker but on my IP tracker.

Hi there!

These IP's started popping up again so I checked them here. I also noticed the hostname has a different IP address in them, while when I look @ my own, it has my IP address in the hostname. Anywho, I looked up the numbers and both appear to be registered to the US. Would that be normal, seeing as these pop up in Spain?

I'm sorry if I'm asking questions that are lame and stupid, I'm still learning how all of this works and how to stop scrapers and spam bots and proxy servers, etc.

Anyway, if someone could explain this, I'd appreciate it.

IP addresses:
87.218.253.35
Hostname: 35.253.218.87.dynamic.jazztel.es

188.78.212.76
Hostname: 76.212.78.188.dynamic.jazztel.es

The two samples you provided above are both assigned to an ISP in Spain. Some ISP's include the IP address in the hostname, some do not. That really has no bearing on if it's a bot, scraper, etc.
