Greetings LiveCoders,

I’m trying to set up an LC Server routine
to retrieve the country name where the user
is supposedly located by using the user’s
IP Address and a cross-reference table.

I’m sure someone here must have done
something similar in the past and I was
wondering what the best method would
be for processing the data.

I can set up either an IP4 or IP6 database,
or one that has both, but the number of
records to search is over 400,000 for just
IP4. Is one easier than the other to implement?

What problems have people run into trying
to do this in the past, and what should I do?
