Can anyone tell me if the IP address 85.31.69.* could possibly be from a person in Iraq? Its more a curiosity as far as what a user is claiming.

I've traced it to the UK and Texas using two different tools.

TX
www.geobytes.com/IpLoc....talia.net
UK
www.ripe.net/whois?for...rch=Search

What gives?

Server specs (Server OS / Apache / MySQL / PHP / DragonflyCMS):
Unix / 2.0.46 (Red Hat) / 0.9.7a / 4.1.9-standard / 4.3.2 / 9.0.6.1


Appears to be from Southwark, near London, England.

So is the geobytes website consistantly wrong?

There are few free sites which you can use in mods like IP Tracker these days, geobytes being one of them - it is usually fairly accurate.

Ultimately I use dnsstuff.com to verify checks, and even that has become significantly limited compared to what they used to offer for free - you now have to pay for the extensive service they used to offer, but the Reverse DNS check is still available. There are others available but they are becoming increasingly restricted, largely as a result of abuse.

Just to add my cents. I like to use centralops.net along with combo of IP Tracker and geobytes.

IP range 85.31.66.0 - 85.31.79.255 belongs to talia.net, a UK based ISP. According to themselves, they "provide coverage from Europe to the Middle East and beyond".
