Dear all,

I have just installed the latest release of piwik and the latest free database from geoIP. A friend of mine from France connected to my website (he has an ipv6 address) and piwik wrongly classified its ip as coming from the US.
So I guess there is a problem with ipv6 adresses in the geoIP lite database? Do you have an idea?
Many thanks

Yes, it's a limitation of the the database.

thank you for your answer. However I have seen that there may be a piwik patch for this behavior? are you aware of that? is it working? thx

i see that there are two free databases http://dev.maxmind.com/geoip/legacy/geolite/
one for ipv4 and one for ipv6

how can i use both files in piwik?
