Jeff,

You can get it from this page: http://dev.maxmind.com/geoip/legacy/geolite/
Database: GeoLite Country (Binary / gzip). Unzip downloaded archive into eWall installation folder, replacing GeoIP.dat file.

Hey Alex

I did that but the new file is half the size of the old file and I am not sure it would work.
My current eWall GeoIP.dat is 1,135 kb the new one I just downloaded is 545 kb. I don't want to break my ewall by using a bad file format or something like that, half the size doesn't sound correct.

Any thoughts or does that new file size sound correct to you?

Thanks,

Jeff

The file size may be vary from month to month. And you can always backup your current GeoIP.dat file to come back if something goes wrong.
