Additional Notes

- Customize the page template file (geo-location.zip) as necessary to match the look and feel you desire

- The page template uses geo-location data provided by freegeoip.net. You will need to configure your firewall to allow the GridGuard server to send http requests to this service. Alternatively, you can host your own geoip service. For instructions on how to setup your own service, refer to the freegeoip.net website.

- The page template users map data provided by Google Maps. Customize the template as necessary to use and alternative mapping service or to remove the map from the page.
