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).

i.e.

* 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.


History:

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 have no idea what Hidemyass, makemeaninja are, but no, annonymous proxies do not pass on the information - they wouldnt be very annonymous if they did.

Installed and working good. Tks.

May be here is not the right channel for asking this but I'm sure who's using this mod might be interested in that too. Is there a way to block new registers if they are using annonymous proxies ?

Oh - believe me - that's a pure waste of time. That module requires that a proxy uses the HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR variables which some proxies do, others not.
By reading that variable it's possible to find the real IP but with a Webserver Module - at least for Apache, dunno about others, you can do the same.
Just - point is - just do a Search in your favorite Search Engine for "anonymous proxies" and you'll find a lot of them, most of them are non working. Problem is just that having a blocklist you need to update to add or remove proxies, well, a waste of time.
I just want to say that it's nearly impossible to block all proxies without a false positive and we shouldn't forget that there're still countries in this world which block sites - these people need proxies to bypass any filters to access the web freely.

What works for spam filters in blacklisting dynamic IP's doesn't make sense everywhere else - sorry

Are file changes needed to be done *again* to simply upgrade this module to the latest version?

If you are referring to the update today then no, just the product xml was updated slightly (to detect the 3.7 version of ipinfo as well).
