    I'm not quite sure that i understand you - you want to track the location of people who vistit eg. yoursite.com ?

    It'll be in your webserver's logfiles (assuming they're being generated in the first place).

    Once you've got the client IP address (but it may be spoofed) you can use free IPv4 Address geolocation databases to get an approximate location (usually to the nearest country, or state if its in the USA)

    Anything more precise requires some pretty serious legal action.

    I am not sure what exactly you're looking for, but if you want to get the IP address of a user visiting your ASP.NET site, you can use something like the following:

    Dim strClientIP As String
    strClientIP = Request.UserHostAddress()
    Response.Write(strClientIP)

    See this posting for some more info:

    Hope this helps,
