Banned People Returning?

Post by Al For Life »

I think some people who were banned on my forum are somehow able to come back.

They've been banned by IP address, is there any way that they can do this? and if there is, is there a way I can stop it?

Thanks for your help

1) If they're behing a proxy they can change their IP address and I'm not aware of any way to prevent this.
2) If they're not, you can ban ranges of IP address, IE 127.0.0.*. The problem with this is that often this will also block "innocent" users.

Hardly the sort of thing to be discussed here is it?

if the users is using a dialup connection. then this will be hard in banning them because their IP addresses change. i think everytime they make a connection. i guess its because of their proxy.

And the US (mostly).
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, margarita in one hand - chocolate in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO! - What a Ride!"
