Geoplugin does not record state

Hi,
I noticed that the state is always "not detected" even though the domain is confirmed on the GeoPlugin website.
Can this be blocked by a CSP, or an extension like Admin Tools?
I don't know how to debug this. Maybe you have an idea?

The geoplugin query is made by the server, not the client - so CSP won't affect it. I suppose a PHP script could affect it - but only by disabling CURL or setting disable_url_fopen...

Did you sign up for a geoplugin.com account?

I've been considering integrating the geodata into eprivacy - or as a separate plugin that everyone can query.....

If I integrate it - the plugin is going to get a lot bigger.

Yes, cURL is enabled, and allow_url_fopen also.
And I signed up (and verified) the domain at geoplugin.com.
Does the plugin make a request to geoplugin.com or does geoplugin.com tries to connect with some file on my server.
If it's the second situation, what file does it try to reach? I will need to declare it in the .htaccess file.

The server makes a request to geoplugin.com via curl or file_get_contents (whichever is available)

With GDPR looming, it wouldn't surprise me if the geoplugin service is being overwhelmed.....

This is a good reason to implement my own geo lookup within Joomla....a separate plugin I think would be best....
