Proxy IP to real IP conversion

This modification is no longer available or supported.

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 ......

Note: Obviously this hack relies on the proxy server passing the correct http variables to allow detection.

If a proxy is detected, then a red ip icon is displayed instead of the standard one. This mod will also detect if the ipinfo hack is installed and adjust itself to call the ipinfo code.


v3.7.001 : Initial release for vbulletin 3.7 beta.
v3.7.002 : Fix px.gif - Update install data for 3.7.
v3.7.003 : Installation Code Updated.

Remember that this modification involves changes to the class_core.php file - if you upgrade your vbulletin, you must reapply those changes.

I think there is a problem with the px.gif I just downloaded it and it has dimensions of 3349x3345 and when opened says, "Drawing Failed".
