Various important questions, please help

Post by SkillinBizkit »

Hi. In ban control, when i try to ban 24.168 ip range, i do this. -24.168-, doesnt add it to the ban box. I try 24.168* and it still doesn't add it! Why?!

Also, how can i find out the ip addresses from the user admin?

Try 24.168.*.*, that pattern has worked for me

As for IP, that isn't possible. If they've posted, you can get the IP from that, but if not and they aren't online you'll need a MOD

you will need to search in the MOD database for one named something like ban IP I would imagine.

also, banning via IP does no good in the long run. most people get a new IP every time they log onto the net.

AOL users get new IPs randomly while online.

it is really a waste of time.
