Blocking Proxy Servers is it possible?

Post by CruizingComet on June 4th 2011, 10:07 am

Can anyone tell me if it's possible to block members accessing our forum through a proxy server? We have a number of suspicious members joining and we suspect one person is joining under various aliases but through a proxy as the IP's don't match, is there a code or anything that can be added to restrict those accessing the forum through a proxy?

Also, is there a way to detect if a member is accessing the forum via a proxy like hidemyass?

Thanks

Hi,
don't think there's a way of blocking proxys. Only thing that would help is to set your settings to Account activation by email. So he will have to use real emails and than you could bann them. He would have to stop sometime.

Thanks Nera

Yes this is how we have it setup, but the accounts are all registered with free email providers.
