This hack makes the forum always use the members real ip when a proxy is detected, meaning that all existing ip functions should continue to work, basically ignoring the proxy server (other than recording it's presence).
* The real ip (or host) is displayed in the who's online page.
* The real and proxy server ip's are accesible for each post, the button is red for members using a proxy server.
* The real ip is searchable in the admin/mod cp (but not the proxy ip).
* The real ip can be banned by admins.
etc etc ......
Obviously this hack relies on the proxy server passing the correct http variables to allow detection.
This hack is packaged as a vBulletin product (my first use of this facility) so hopefully I have got everything right. When importing it make sure that 'Allow Overwrite' is set to 'yes'.
Hey guys as you see there is this mod that changes proxies to a person's real IP for vbulletin and this is a VERY important tool that i think EVERY forum needs because hell with this mod a banned person could never come back and so on, so i really wanted to request your ideas guys and what you think about this.
