The new version seems to tell me every time that *I AM* using a proxy (well, and im not), but it doesnt email or pm as the version before it did. Maybe it's giving the red box in error?

Disabled for the time being

Dont see how this will stop someone with these tor or proxy coming to your forums and looking around there is only a small box

Reading the description, seems that in the paid version, you can re direct the users, but not in the free one.

For those who use VB 3.x and need some to block TOR, see: http://www.reaper-x.com/2012/05/15/h...che-and-nginx/

It's also an alternative to this plugin if blocking TOR is your only goal, it's lightweight and doesn't add the overhead of reverse lookups. Instead each hour it downloads the TOR IP list which can connect to your server's IP. I've been using this method successfully for a couple of years.

There is a 3.x version:

Glad you like my addon, thank you for your feedback. :) I do agree, in the wrong hands proxies can do some damage. I will look into the VPNs.

In the AdminCP change redirection to yes, then will prevent anyone from accessing your forums.

So I can narrow down the issue as to which script is detecting you, I am sending you a debugging version to you via PM. The reason it is not PMing you, is because it uses a cookie based system to make sure it does not PM you every time it detects you. With the debug version, delete your cookies, install the new version, and refresh you inbox. Copy the message and reply to my PM on here with what it says.

The redirecting to a blank page is a pro feature, redirecting to proxy.php is a free feature to enable in the AdminCP.

Ahh cool, see even I did not fully read the description. :p

1.5 has been released to give you the following features:
Block Proxy Registrations
Redirect Proxy Registrations to Blank Page [PRO]
Block Registration Even When Proxy Disabled [PRO] - This uses a cookie and when the guest is detected and blocked at registration, will continue to be blocked when this is enabled, even if the guest disables their proxy.

The registration error uses vB phrasing.

All is well. :)

Great features.
Honestly am happy to be using the pro version.
Such a small fee for such features included in the pro version.

Looking forward to see a method to block vpn. :D

I'm happy to hear that, I know how it is for some small websites out there, and paying a large fee for every script out there doesn't seem worth it to me. I try to make all my scripts affordable, in fact they all are under a dollar. I guess I am just a budget kind of guy, I guess I just like seeing those who are actually interested, supporting something they like, and I try to make it as easy as possible to do so. Another thing that helps is that almost all the scripts I build and release I use on my own website. This one I started out with just an alert box, which is still all I use, but requests came through PM and it just got me invested in making them come true. One too many times I can count that I request something from a supported mod's developer, and it never came to be in their product, so I had to modify it myself. After years of doing this I learned I had a knack of doing it, built my first mod and after it took off, just kind of kept going.

I am researching more into the vpn, no eta on that as I would like to focus a little on some other features that have been more requested and that I have been promising for a while like permissions.

hello
I upgrade ver 1.5 pro version but I tried to log in proxy and to register, I logged in and registered without any problems or restrictions.
I do not know why it does not work?

I tried to go to your site, but it appears to be down. If you go to the Admin CP -> Settings -> Proxy Alert, you will see the newly added option for blocking registration. It doesn't block by default.

In future versions yes, but I have not implemented permissions yet.

Dont think is is needed, anyone can download the Tor browser for test.
