I don't understand this.
I go to http://torstatus.blutmagie.de/ and have a look at the exit node "gigatux" called emohawk2.gigatux.com and located at 126.96.36.199.
This appears to be located in the UK according to blutmagie.de.
When I go to www.ip2location.com it tells me:
However, when I log into Gmail and click the "details" button which provides me with the "Activity Information" I am informed that:
This computer is using IP address 188.8.131.52. (United States (MA)
This is not the first time I have seen Gmail (Google Mail) claim an exit node is from a location which exit node websites (like blutmagie.de) disagree. Why in this case, for example, is Gmail claiming the exit node IP is in the USA rather than the UK?
