While content servers are designed to receive traffic from many countries, unfortunately. there is no distinction between geographic regions and provide everyone the same data. The indirect consequence is that several areas can be exposed to vulnerabilities and security threats.
Geo Router is a lightweight piece of software that can partition the incoming traffic according to the individual needs of the geographic regions and countries.
The setup is quick, uneventful and does not require any special attention from your part. Upon launch, you come face to face with an appealing interface that displays a comprehensive list of reserved networks as well as geographic regions and countries.
For enhanced convenience, the utility comes with a filter function that enables you to search for a particular country or region. Moreover, you can seamlessly mark and unmark all regions by accessing the dedicated buttons from the toolbar. You should bear in mind that the app solely forwards the traffic from the routing targets assigned.
Functionality-wise, the program is as simple to use as it looks. Therefore, after you select the countries or geographic regions, you are required to enter the IP addresses of the routing target servers. The application allows you to include both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses, but you can also leave the field empty if you want to clear the routing.
Depending on the protocol of the incoming network traffic, the tool assigns the IP addresses to your targets automatically. In case you clear or assign targets, then that triggers the automatic apply of the rules to the network driver. To make sure everything works accordingly, you can modify the application of rules delay from the Options window.
All in all, Geo Router is designed for network administrators who want to split and merge traffic from different countries better. Not only is your IP address and details hidden, but it can also help strengthen the overall security of content servers.
