09 Ago 11 DNSBL GeoIP service at countries.nerd.dk

I recently discovered a wonderful DNSBL service reporting you where public Internet IPs are from.
The service is countries.nerd.dk: http://countries.nerd.dk/more.html

You can for example block any mail at your mailserver coming from china or russia, simply integrating this DNSBL with your MTA.
You can even get the country of your IP with dig!

Warning: You need to swap IP octets. If for example the IP to check is 192.162.132.171, you have to call 171.132.162.192.zz.countries.nerd.dk.

root@nbvirtdns1:/# dig TXT 201.65.24.151.zz.countries.nerd.dk

201.65.24.151.zz.countries.nerd.dk. 1047 IN TXT “it”

    To block a country from sending mail to your MTA, you’d simply prepend the IANA country code to .countries.nerd.dk.

    Examples:
    cn.countries.nerd.dk -> China
    kr.countries.nerd.dk -> Korea
    pl.countries.nerd.dk -> Poland
    ru.countries.nerd.dk -> Russia
    br.countries.nerd.dk -> Brazil
    ar.countries.nerd.dk -> Argentina
