GEO IP from code



Im trying to filter pages from code behind.

I have visitor groups created on different areas of sweden.

When a user arrives to the page I collect a list of pages, customer service.

I want to do a check from code which page to present data data from but also be able to override the visitor group.

If i am in Stockholm i should get the customer service from stockholm but also be able to change and view Gothenburg.

I cant seem to find any examples of how to do this from code behind.

this is what I've done in a project: 

 public IPAddress GetIPAddress()
            var request = System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Request;

            string ipString;
            if (String.IsNullOrEmpty(request.ServerVariables["HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR"]))
                ipString = request.ServerVariables["REMOTE_ADDR"];
                ipString = request.ServerVariables["HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR"].Split(",".ToCharArray(), StringSplitOptions.RemoveEmptyEntries)

            IPAddress result;
            if (!IPAddress.TryParse(ipString, out result))
                result = IPAddress.None;

            return result;


Then, later by using episervers geolocation (maxmind) api, 

var prov = Geolocation.Provider;
var result = prov.Lookup(ipAddress);


Hope it works.

I got a point in the right direction and the solution was pretty simple

public static List<VisitorGroup> GetUserVisitorGroups()
            var visitorGroupHelper = new VisitorGroupHelper();
            var visitorGroups = new VisitorGroupStore();
            IEnumerable<VisitorGroup> groups = visitorGroups.List();

            var userVisitorGroups = new List<VisitorGroup>();

            foreach (var group in groups)
                if (visitorGroupHelper.IsPrincipalInGroup(Thread.CurrentPrincipal, group.Name, new HttpContextWrapper(HttpContext.Current)))
            return userVisitorGroups;

I then compared the groups with the  ACL key on the page(i set the visitor group as authorized to view the page)
