GeoIP setting Source address


Is there any way to set the local address while using GeoIP? I'm doing a capture from a 192.168 address and it doesn't know where it's located. I know it's a private address and the DB has no way of knowing where it's located.

One Answer:


Currently only GeoIP databases are supported (files beginning with "Geo" and ending with ".dat").

To add your local RFC1918 addresses it would be necessary to build your own database. Maybe this github repo is a start.
