Title: Other GeoIP database(s)
Post by: marcelmah on January 02, 2020, 09:22:32 am
Hi,

Best wishes for everyone.

I noticed a commit to fix the availability changes in GeoIP database made by Maxmind.
https://github.com/opnsense/core/commit/b4147a1e947997a79186f95bbf52fa8131f50501

It also states: support other vendors as well (format should be documented in our docs)

Are there any other working (already supported) alternatives? and if so which is the best?

Hi,

No, there are no other vendors supported, but the file format is described in our docs repository (not published yet). Eventually we might offer one preinstalled as part of our business edition, but nothing solid yet. There aren't a lot of other options available which do not require some sort of registration as far as I could find.

To install the new code, see https://github.com/opnsense/core/issues/3856#issuecomment-569531305

Doc update can be found here https://github.com/opnsense/docs/commit/93f3e9dd41e9c7dfc28c8acae123baa08dcb747c

Best regards,
