ip2ll Ways of finding Location from IP Address


Use reverse DNS to find out the host's name.
This item could supply some clues that could help.
E.g. given the IP address

        [simon@ns0 simon]$ nslookup
        Server:  localhost

        Name:    construct.haifa.ac.il
This gives two hints -
  1. The TLD is .il, which hints the host is in Israel.
  2. The next two domains are haifa.ac, so this host belongs to the 'haifa' academical institute (a university, in this case). The Haifa university happens to be in the city Haifa.
