  • Domain/IP banning

    Hi.

    A troublesome user is using his University account to register to our site. His IP resolves to pal-171-152.itap.purdue.edu

    Is it possible for us to ban purdue.edu from the board?

    You'd ban the whole university, but it is possible. 'Unresolve' (if that's even a word) a few of the university's access point addresses (IE: pal-171-152.itap.purdue.edu) to get an rough idea of the IP range, then, ban the whole IP range (IE: if it resolves to 127.0.0.1 to 127.0.3.255, do a ban for 127.0.0, 127.0.1, 127.0.2, and 127.0.3).
    Best Regards,
    Andy Huang

      I'd contact the school honestly, or at least make it clear to the user you will. Colleges do not look apon spam and other such things too nicely
