Limiting IP address accounts creation to one total

Post by lethia on August 22nd 2010, 5:53 pm

I am trying to find a way to limit accounts to only one per IP address. Is there a way to do this or is the only IP limitation the 24 hours?

Thank you in advance

You can't really do it, they can always use proxies.

if a user is banned does it ban the IP or just the name?

I think it just banns the account, meaning you just can't log on to the account.. but there is a way to ban the IP adress, as Sanket said, people like to use proxies. Razz

im sure most of the people using my forum wouldn't have the next clue about proxies and what not... i just want to be sure that if we ban someone we can ban their IP(s)

If they're banned normally, they can still visit the forum as a guest, but if they're ip banned, they can't, they'll get a message preventing them from viewing the forum, but members using proxies can't be ip banned.
