  • Can vBulletin detect spiders by IP?

    And if it can, what's the format to put the IP in spiders_vbulletin.xml?

    It detects by user agent. If the IP address is in the user agent string then yes it can.

      There's a pesky Accoona Spider that has a normal IDENT string that we can't seem the get vBulletin to recognize as a Spider. The IP resolves to accoona but nothing in the IDENT string.

        Here is another example of a spider that gets through as a Guest:

        IP: 217.73.28.7
        Resolve: datahost.vnet.sk
        IDENT: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)

        Isn't there a way to add an IP/Resolve for the spiders that slip through? I couldn't capture it, but the link this was using was long and wrong.
