NAME

Geo::IP2Proxy - Reverse search of IP address to detect VPN servers, open proxies, web proxies, Tor exit nodes, search engine robots and data center ranges using IP2Proxy BIN database. Other information available includes proxy type, country, state, city, ISP, domain name, usage type, AS number, AS name and last seen date.

This pure Perl module uses a file based IP2Proxy .BIN database available at IP2Proxy Proxy Detection upon subscription. It supports both IPv4 and IPv6 addressing.

DESCRIPTION

This Perl module provides fast reverse lookup of IP address to detect VPN servers, open proxies, web proxies, Tor exit nodes, search engine robots and data center ranges using IP2Proxy BIN database. Other information available includes proxy type, country, state, city, ISP, domain name, usage type, AS number, AS name and last seen date.

This pure Perl module uses a file based IP2Proxy .BIN database available at IP2Proxy Product Page upon subscription. You can visit Libraries to download BIN sample files. It supports both IPv4 and IPv6 addressing.

IP2PROXY DATABASES

The complete IPv4 and IPv6 proxy database are available at IP2Proxy product page

Meanwhile, sample databases are available at IP2Proxy development libraries

The IP2Proxy database is being updated in daily basis for greater accuracy.

Free creative-common monthly database with open proxies data only is available at IP2Proxy LITE
