dk (denmark) has address 184.108.40.206
gh (ghana) has address 220.127.116.11
im (isle of man) has address 18.104.22.168
ky (cayman islands) has address 22.214.171.124
ls (lesotho) has address 126.96.36.199
md (moldova, republic of) has address 188.8.131.52
nf (norfolk island) has address 184.108.40.206
pf (french polynesia) has address 220.127.116.11
tj (tajikistan) has address 18.104.22.168
zr (zaire) has address 22.214.171.124
