  • banning options - reverse DNS, instead of IP

    I have a problem-child user that keeps registering - and I keep banning him. By using a "reverse DNS lookup" utility, I see that every IP address he's used is from a particular DNS, "Dial1.TownName1.Level3.net".

    Can I just enter Dial1.TownName1.Level3.net into the Banning Options, instead of the actual IP numbers?
    Thanks,
    Still Waters

    There is no option to ban hostnames. You have to enter an IP.

    One option might be to ban an entire block by not specifying all 4 octets. This might work if all of his IPs are in the same range.

    Otherwise I recommend you temporarily enable moderation of new accounts.
