    I have tested many times. When I see brute force attacks and IP's it is location from EU but actually when I validate it is from SeychXXX. Can be used some other service to detect IP and country or this is default service not possible to be migrated?

    I don't believe you can select which GeoIP database is used from WHM - there may be a way of hacking the code but I don't know it :(

    Information for the GeoIP database used by cPHulk : GEO IP Database FAQ

    CSF/LFD GeoIP is supplied by the MaxMind GeoLite2 Country database : GeoIP2 Country Database | MaxMind

    A resource I find useful is IP Location Finder - Geolocation that checks 4 different GeoIP databases simultaneously (and mostly returns widely different results)

    Hope this helps

    Great advice @rpvw


    @toplisek I'm not sure how/why you are getting the incorrect location from that but if you're unable to find a solution from what was provided
    please feel free to open a ticket using the link in my signature.

    Thanks!
