  • IP Security

    Well I guess this could be a how do I, so here goes. I am currently using a nuke-evolution based system and moving it over to vb. The nuke-evo comes with a mod called Sentinal for IP security, banning, user/ip info etc.. Does VB have something similar built in, or do I need a mod? I see the part in the admin for user banning options, but things that I am missing are these:

    1. The ability to disallow proxy servers

    2. The ability to lookup an IP address based on people currently on the site - for example if I have guests on my system can I see all the IP addresses and ban from there?

    Hope thats it. Thanks!

    1. You can ban IP addresses but there is no way I know of to automatically determine if an IP is from a proxy server.

    2. Sorry, there is no function to do this. This requires modifying the code. We cannot officially support code modifications or forums running modified code, however you can try searching or asking for help with this over at www.vbulletin.org.

      The first one is possible with a mod from http://vBulletin.org

      Could you expand on the second one, please? I know Steve says it's not possible, but if I'm understanding what you mean I believe it is...

        With the second one I mean this; if I have 20 guests online I want a place where I can see all the ip's they are coming from and have the ability to ban from that screen (the one that doesnt exist yet)

          Hmm. The who's online page will let you see IPs of online guests and members, but there's not interface there to ban, this must be done in the ACP.
