PAM module for GeoIP login restrictions

Found a very nice PAM module (can be used with SSH etc) that can provide login restrictions based on user geo-location as per official internet registrars’ stats files. It’s probably not as good as its commercial rivals but does the job if you’re not too picky! It can also block logins in a LAN based on source MAC or IP addresses.
