[MODDB] Restrict Account To IP

Post by geocator »

This mod allows you to restrict login of a specified account to a specific IP address.

Be carefull you can lock yourself out. I suggest you create a test account first.

This MOD is now in the MOD-DB: http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=302493

My plan is to add to it to allow you to specify multiple ranges/IPs to allow this kind of thing. I just have to figgure out how to handle ranges.

Not a bad idea, although I wonder if users would end up locking themselves out becuase they dont know what they are doing :D

I assume you mean only the admin panel and nothing else? This MOD already covers the admin panel.

SO this will allow them to view posts but not login to post? This is somthing I'm looking for because I'm going to start up a school website with forums though I don't want it where they can post @ school but can view it @ school... ;) (My schools ip is static)

No just the oposite, It restricts logining in to one IP address. However you could probably change it to do what you want, but would need a bit of tweeking.

Alright, huge update posted. You can now give mutlipe entries and use ranges.

If someone using php 3 can test, please do. Need to make sure my compatibility kludge works.

Cool. So, if I'm correct, this can help prevent the creation of multiple accounts by a particular user.

No that is not what it does. Again it restricts the IP addresses that a specific account can login from.

Oh -- I thought it would make it so that a user under a specific IP or range of IPs would have to use a particular account. Still think this is a useful MOD, though.
