Broader ban options
« on: July 18, 2006, 09:15:25 PM »

Just a thought.

What about being able to ban IP ranges or CIDR. Perhaps the use of a htaccess file? I understand the problem associated with banning full ranges as far as restricting legitimate users also within that range, BUT on occassion it could be a short term fix for that "Problem" child.

Also if bans where stored in a common file would be good, For those that run multiple servers, rather then having to manualy enter the ban on all servers.

Hi Bob,

Just in case you hadn't already seen it, I've added the ability to ban by IP address ranges in beta 27.  Take a look and see how it works for you...

Russell,

Thank you for that mod and your reply also, I had seen the "IP range" option and it is a great addition :)

I'm sorry for my late response.

Bob.
