How to identify private IP address ranges?
« on: February 23, 2018, 09:22:07 AM »

I came to the conclusion that bookmakers are identifying player's accounts by checking the IP range of the player, and not only the unique IP used to login to the account.
Could someone explain how these ranges work, and how could a player find out the range of IPs that he or she is using?
The question is important for many members I suppose.
Thank you.

You are very much correct with your question and I hope that everyone involved will take it seriously.
I had to ask someone more experienced and he provided the following link where you can check your current IP and your IP range:
https://mxtoolbox.com/SuperTool.aspx?action=arin%3a194.63.116.72&run=toolpage
in this example, the IP range is 194.63.0.0 - 194.63.127.255
I m sure this helps.

Thank you guys. This is problematic, most of the time it's not so easy to get IP range to change. Do you have strong evidence that bookies check the range, not only the full IP?

Without getting into technical details, here is what I suggest you do, step by step.

First, you need to find out what your IP is. Use this tool:
https://www.iplocation.net/find-ip-address
Your IP is highlighted in yellow.

Then, copy your IP and go to the tool that arbusers suggested: https://mxtoolbox.com/SuperTool.aspx?action=arin%3a194.63.116.72&run=toolpage
Paste your IP in the box and press ARIN look up. Your IP range is the one that follows ''inetnum''.

Lastly, go to https://www.ipaddressguide.com/cidr and paste the IP range in the 2nd box and click calculate. You will get a new result and this is what a bookmaker and some other institutions are using to identify you.

You could avoid step #3 as it has no interest from the player's side, unless your IT guy thinks differently.

Really how many of you guys employ an IT guy for your little dirty tricks?
