IP locator strange result
Slightly confused while playing around with the IP locator and wondering
if there is anyone that could explain the problem I stumbled accross.
When doing a lookup on
126.96.36.199 (lots of them around that IP say they are from Cuba)
it reports the IP as being in La Habana, Ciudad De La Habana (province),
Yet Arin reports the the IP block as being a part of
UUNET Technologies, Inc. UUNET65 (NET-65-192-0-0-1)
188.8.131.52 - 184.108.40.206
HealthSouth UU-65-213-175-128 (NET-65-213-175-128-1)
220.127.116.11 - 18.104.22.168
Other sites offering an IP locator report the .130 net address as being down in Florida and Im curious as to how it is determined where the IP originates from. Only interested because if other website use the same locator wouldn't it cause problems accessing some websites that check to see where in the world you are (ie Paypall) ?

The IP locator on this site doesn't work properly I guess other ones suffer from problems as well.
Our one thinks that I am in Amsterdam, Holland, although I have seen it put me in Washington State
If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
