After you download a geolocation database, you can identify the country that is associated with a given IP address. You can then use the country code or country name in policy.


Identify a country by IP address:

  1. In the Management Console, select Configuration > Geolocation > General.
  2. On the General tab, in the IP Address field, enter a valid IPv4 or IPv6 address.
  3. Click Locate.The country associated with the IP address, as defined in the geolocation database, displays next to the IP Address field.
  4. (Optional) To view the list of countries in the geolocation database, click Show list of countries in Geolocation database. The list opens in a separate browser window.

To write policy about a specific country, use the country code specified in square brackets beside the country name. For example, the country code for Canada is “CA”. If the IP address you enter is not valid, an error appears. See Troubleshoot Geolocation for more information.
