And, how can I manually add spiders? Through their UA, or differently? I'm still not installing it, as this is very important for me, so I'm waiting to know how to do this.

Yes

Of course if you wanted to just allow a few bots and not all (The ones you know are good bots) then you could just check the user agent for Googlebot or multiple other bots.

This looks pretty complicated. Where it should go?

Would your mod be able to work in report only mod, without actually blocking anyone and just creating threads with users who use proxies?

As of now, no. I can code this feature though. I'm still working on database logging, once that is completed I will work on that as well. Give me a few days.

I installed the Pro version today and used this site http://anonymizer.nntime.com/ to access my site. Do I not have it set up correctly? Because I was able to login...

Testing this promising mod and it successfully denied me access using the TOR browser.

I have a quick question:
I enabled: Would you like to enable Tor Alert for lan proxies?

Now I got several PM's telling me what users are detected using a LAN proxy. I know those users and they are trusted.

Are they actually blocked and don't have access or is it just an info I get in the PM and those users can access the forum?

Thanks

Right now if you don't have redirect on, it's just an alert to the users. In the next version logging only option is available. It's about 50% done, should be done by the end of the weekend.

That website will not load for me to test. However, not this version, but a future version I am going to incorporate a blacklist as well.

Thank you. I got the PRO version in the mean time.
I know PRO versions can't be discussed here on the forum.
Can I PM you if I have any questions regarding your mod?

Yes of course.

Could we redirect proxy users to some URL we choose? So we can explain them there that they couldn't use our site till they use proxy?

At the moment I think they only receive message that they use proxy (so they know we know :D), or they get redirected to proxy.php, without any message. What if we want to explain them that proxy isn't allowed here?

TheInsaneManiac 18 Nov 2013 05:09

Just an update, new version is about 75% completed. May just release without database logging for a bit. Having some back end issues with server loads.

The proxy.php page is customizable with it's own message.

Sorry if this sounds a bit thick, but does it catch those already registered who are using a proxy ?

this blocks transparent proxies configured by some internet providers, sad

This is why I incorporated an IP whitelist, just in case. :)


Just an update, I am still working on the logging feature, I'll probably just release the thread logging feature and then continue working on the database logging.

faisaly.com 24 Nov 2013 17:54

correct but using this blocks alot of guests from registering because it blocks the transparent proxy and there is no way around it...

alot of isps use this, its not a browser configuration
