  • New Registrations with Same IP problem...

    Hi there,

    I'm having a problem with people with the same IP address can not register after the first person with that IP Address does.

    For example... if you worked for ABC Company and your IP Address is 123.456.789.000 You can register. Now your colegue Bob wants to register on my forum too... but when trying to register from the same IP... Bob sees a message:

    Sorry, we are not accepting new registrations at this time.

    How do I allow multiple registrations from the same IP address... so that multiple people from ABC Company can register on my forum?

    in my AdminCP I have the Allow Multi Registrations per user set to YES... thinking that it would resolve the problem but it does not.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    There is nothing in the default vB or in the settings that stops multiple registrations fom the same IP. This has to be from a modification you've made.

    To troubleshoot this, remove any hacks and disable your plugins, then see if you still have this problem.

    Note: To temporarily disable the plugin system, edit config.php and add this line right under <?php

    define('DISABLE_HOOKS', true);

    If so, reupload all the original vB non-image files (except install.php). Make sure you upload these in ASCII format and overwrite the ones on the server.
