European server IP addresses

Probably just a naive question: when I use traceroute to see where my data goes on its way to I just see US servers as destination (at least US IPs).

Is this due to 1Password using AWS? European AWS are hosted in Frankfurt/Germany AFAIK. That's why I thought to see some German IPs ..

Can you explain please?

    Hi @basurerito!

    I have tried the traceroute command on my machine too, and I was wondering how you were checking for the country exactly? The results I get here are all in Europe.

  • Which DNS server/service do you use?

    And how is it configured?

  • hmm, yesterday I simply used my smartphone (Network Analyzer Pro) and it shows me the endpoint being in USA (Amazon though).

    Today I re-checked with standard traceroute (TCP mode) and geoiplookup and got the results I expected:

     # traceroute -T
    traceroute to (, 30 hops max, 60 byte packets
     1  <snip>
     2  <snip>
     3  <snip>
     4  <snip>
     5 (  20.095 ms   <snip>
     6 (  22.515 ms  <snip>
     7 (  13.557 ms  <snip>
     8 (  23.961 ms   <snip>
    26 (  25.255 ms *  26.159 ms


    # geoiplookup
    GeoIP Country Edition: DE, Germany

    So everything is fine, I was simply wrong :-)
