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.
This tool combines two previous tools, Verify Akamai IP and Locate IP.
Learn how to create a request in the Verify and Locate IP tool.
- Go to ☰ > SUPPORT > Edge Diagnostics.
- In the side menu, select > Verify and Locate IP.
- Enter up to 10 IP addresses.
- Click Submit.
What you should see
If you entered more than one IP, Edge Diagnostics divides your input; one request per one IP address. All requests appear in the Recent requests table. Click in the table's corner to see only your requests.
- Click your request’s row to check the results. If you see in the Actions column, it means, that your request could not be processed and you need to retry.
- For IP addresses verified as part of the Akamai edge network, you can run further diagnostics using the Get Domain Details (DIG), View Logs (GREP), or Test Network Connectivity (MTR) tools.
Mapping results can help you verify, for example, if you're being attacked from a single or multiple locations.
