Thanks for the reminder. For my purpose, I just need to know the country of the IP - not the specific state or city.
I am able to use geoip from a perl script from the command line but I can't get the same script (with the shebang line added and correct cgi permission of 755 set) to run as a web script. It's frustrating (my apologies to those who helped with answering my questions from my earlier post venting my frustration).
I saw someone suggesting Geo::IPfree and tried it. It works so I'm using that now.
