    In that case I don't think it's possible they could be the same IP, unless they were both accessing through the same anonymous proxy.

    Ask yourself these questions?

    1) Have they created problems?

    2) If the answer to #1 is no, is it worth the worry right now?

    3) If that answer is no, what are you worrying over it right now? Liz

    It's possible that they are using AOL or yahoo who uses some of the same IP for their users. PITB but it happens. Liz

    I changed the amount of time on the Cookies and HTTP Header Options -> Time-Out for Cookie to a more acceptable range for ME. Of course it helps that I resresh every so often anyway.

    But the part about them being online at the same time, as long as you don't ban the use of same email/IP then it doesn't matter WHICH version of vBulletin you are using. And NO HACK is involved. That is something that is a user option.
    You could have a lan setup and have two different computers (or more) where each person is logged in
    I wouldn't set it up otherwise. If they want two people in their household on the same forum, they can do it the way WE have done it...thru a network. Liz

    Works for me. We'll just wait till 3.5 goes final then.

    @ lady: On what criteria are you logged in then (and stay logged in).

    Yes, they can be logged in at the same time.

    My husband and I are also members of the forum and are logged in at the same time occasionally. Altho he doesn't go in very often. Liz

    Yes it is possible to be logged in with the same IP more than once. You could have a lan setup and have two different computers (or more) where each person is logged in at, or you could use two different browsers (IE and Firefox for example) on the same computer to be logged in twice. I use that method to be logged in as the admin and as a plain user to check settings I have applied are working how I intended.

    I have a husband and wife at my forum, same IP, same email, different user names.

    If I banned the use of same email, I'd lose both. Liz

    Its not hack related. Simple question is that if it is possible to be logged in twice with the same ip? If not, is it possible to give an guest that always logs into the same non-public page a fixed name (in stead of guest) in Who's Online, even when he/she/it isnt registered?

    Which other problem? If it involves a hack, then you need to ask over at www.vbulletin.org for help.
