iplocation is available in version 5?

Champion

According to this link, iplocation command is available in version 5.0. I'm not sure if this is incorrect or if my installation is incorrect.

yes, iplocation is available in all versions of Splunk. as noted above, it requires that your Splunk instance have access to the internet, as it uses the http://hostip.info service to provide the location information. i've edited the relevant topic to clarify this.

Yes, I've tried to use it per the documented example and it just hangs. I figured out after digging around that it requires a connection to the Internet -- which should probably be documented.
