Geolocation IP help

To anyone who might be able to help me reach someone clued at the State of Illinois website.

We (Coeo Solutions) had to acquire an IP block, 213.159.132.0/22, from RIPE many years ago. This was due to availability issues at the time for acquiring new IP’s. This block was transferred to ARIN and assigned to Coeo. Before this transfer this IP block was sourced out of Dublin IRE. Now, the majority of Geo-location systems show these as being in the USA correctly, but, apparently whatever the Illinois State uses for their Geo-location verification is still showing these IP’s as being located in Dublin, and because that is outside the USA, they are blocking access to my customers using these IP’s. I have spent months sending emails and filling change requests with every Geo-location database service I can get to respond to me, but apparently none of them are what the St of Illinois uses for their Geo-location filtering.

Any assistance I can find in getting this issue resolved so all my users can have full access to the State of Illinois websites would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

You could try publishing Geo loc data per RFC8805
https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/html/rfc8805

I will look into this, but I’m not sure the Illinois St Police will get this info into their outdated DB.

RFC 8805 - A Format for Self-Published IP Geolocation Feeds

or, more specifically, 9092

Yes, this was mentioned earlier too. I am just worried that the Illinois St police don't update their database through any automated system, it has been over 6 years since these IP's were transferred.

Thanks!

$100? All that gets you nowadays is a clubbing. (and no, not the Rush St bars type of clubbing)
