    I did an online audit at http://www.it-sec.de/vulchke.html as linked to by Kareldjag in here https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?p=693632


    General information

    Welcome My IP/My IP,
    with MSIE 6.0 and WIN 98.

    Followed by a traceroute from 1 to 20. The first 3 were <... skipped ...> and 12 to 20 missing with a wildcard * against the numbers.

    After that, this

    Are you (or your accesspoint) there?

    Status: Ok
    Number: 82.0.0.0 - 95.255.255.255

    Lon: -118.45°
    City: Marina Del Rey
    State: California

    Whois Info NetName: 88-RIPE

    It then does a port scan

    No problems with ZA Free blocking everything, and the general/tcp test was killed.

    The strange thing is the test site is in germany = de and i'm not in the USA, so why does it show and ask if i'm located in california ?

    Hi Bubba thanks for responding.

    No proxy, and it was definately my IP that they showed, and i watched the port scans occuring in ZA, so that's what's puzzling me ? I can't think they could be having such constant errors with the locations, otherwise they would have been alerted to it by now by someone.

    I await further insight into what is, or could be happening here !

    TIA

    I confirm that it gives incorrect information. My location shows exactly like yours and it DEFINITELY is not the same (northern Italy here). :rolleyes:

    So now WSFuser as well as TNT and myself get false locations shown with the test ? How strange ! Anyway that clears up why it happens, it's something on their end. What the actual problem is though we don't know.

    Well we know where were we are even if they don't lol.

    After reading the previous posts, I couldn't resist, just had to see what planet they thought I was on. ;)

    Actually, in my case they didn't do too bad, only about 60 miles off. And of course it's possible that, while my provider's headquartered right here in town, their main servers are physically located out of town.
