Hello Nick et al,
I have only just downloaded HideAway v2.0.3 beta and installed it.
The first redirection I attempted was for Internet Explorer. I set the redirection through Los Angeles USA.
Next I went to http://whatismyipaddress.com/ and was advised that it was 126.96.36.199.
Also on the page it showed a geo-location of :
- ISP: Choopa, LLC
Yes a redirection but not via the USA according to this website.
Next I asked Google, "who is 188.8.131.52" and was given the following:
- IP General Information
IP Address: 184.108.40.206
ISP: Choopa, LLC
IP Geolocation Information
Continent: North America (NA)
Country: United States (US) US
City: Los Angeles
Time Zone: America/Los_Angeles
Latitude: 34.0729 (34°4'22.44" N)
Longitude: -118.2606 (118°15'38.16" S)
Both internet enquires agree that Choopa LLC is the owner but one says Australia and the other says USA.
Next I asked Google where 34.0729, -118.2606 was and was advised that these geo-coordinated are in the middle of "Echo Lake" in Los Angeles. Strangely, I doubt this. I suspect that Choopa LLC have many servers and they are registered in the USA but deployed elsewhere in the world. This theory would explain why two different web sites give two different results.
Please can you advise where this particular server is actually physically located.
If this server is deployed in Australia, it is not as HideAway advises.
regards and thanks
