Verify and Locate IP

The Verify and Locate IP tool checks whether a specific IP address is part of the ​Akamai​ edge network. It also provides geolocation data for the IP's network.

For IPs confirmed as edge server IPs, you can continue diagnostics with Get Domain Details (DIG), View Logs (GREP), or Test Network Connectivity (MTR) tools.

This tool combines two previous tools, Verify ​Akamai​ IP and Locate IP.
