Full Version: How to find banned IP - 3 digits only?

I've banned some IP addresses using the format like this:  159.*.*.*
It turns out that I need to know where the approximate location of the first three numbers, ie;  159

How to do that?
Blocking countries? That's discrimination! How would you like to be blocked from a website just because of where you live? It'd make you feel bad right? MyBB Admins these days :/

I am a very discriminating person. 
If I see a leopard hiding in the brush, I will profile him as up to no good.  It's called pattern recognition and is the essence of intelligence, of which many, if not most, seem to lack.
I am a very bad person.

You can generate firewall block list by country using the web service https://www.ip2location.com/free/visitor-blocker

Meanwhile, if you want raw geolocation in text format, you can sign up free IP2Location LITE database http://lite.ip2location.com

IP2Location has higher accuracy in the commercial edition.
I looked up the subnet: https://bgp.he.net/ip/159.0.0.0#_whois
