I'm not trying to start a political debate--

I'm just wondering if anyone has a ip address range for france possibly?

One of the Companys I do website work for has asked me to look into this.

As you probably already know, formulae for content delivery based on IP blocks are inherently clumsy. People can switch proxy servers to mask their origins. They might not even notice in the first place-- my French landlord uses a Swiss ISP that is part-owned by a subsidiary of a U.S. company.

Anyway, Googling around there appear to be a number of commercial databases which correlate ip blocks to countries. I also found http//www.idefense.com/Intell/CI022702.html (no endorsements whatsoever regarding its comprehensiveness or accuracy).

There's an open source IP database available here [maxmind.com] that may be helpful.

Could I be nosey and ask why you wish to ban France?

Seems rather drastic and if you are trying to hide something from them, they will still find it, perhaps even quicker.

Visit_Thailand, as svoec says in his/her initial post:

Check out the current political situation in the UN Security Coucil for a clue.
