Solved Search user by IP Address

Post by Lever102 on June 21st 2014, 7:48 pm

I want to make sure some people aren't making multiple accounts, and if they are, who is who. I was wondering if I could somehow search an IP address and find all users with that address.

There are only two ways:

1.  With posts:  Press the IP address button in the post.

2.  With no posts:  You and the member must be online at the same time.

Hi,

You would have to check via their posts, for example, I am not sure if you have this button, but when someone posts, you are able to view an "IP" button to check their IP-address, once clicked you're able to view IP Information regarding to that member specific. Also, if you're banning someone's IP, check the following place: ACP >> Users & Groups >> Ban control >> Ban an IP address (tab)


Regards,
Sir Chivas.

Thanks, I know how to view IP addresses, I just wondered if it was possible to find out if someone used multiple accounts through methods other than checking each person's individual IP addresses used.

Oh, no there isn't an available option like that. Forgive us.

Would this consider to be solved?

The only way to get a list of accounts with the same IP address is by pressing the IP address button in posts, only if  the members have posted on the forum.
