Proxy ip to real ip conversion

This modification is no longer available or supported.

A simple modification I did for our forum that was originally based on the Proxy Detector Hack (v3.0). Obviously, like all proxy server detection hacks, this will only work if the proxy server passes the appropiate http variables.

This hack makes the forum always use the members real ip when a proxy is detected, meaning that all existing ip functions continue to work, basically ignoring the proxy server (other than recording it's presence).

i.e.

* The real ip/host is displayed in who's online

* The real and proxy server ip's are accesible for each post, the button is red for members using a proxy.

* The real ip is searchable in the admin/mod cp, not the proxy ip.

* The real ip is bannable by admins (no moving to another proxy to avoid a ban).

etc etc.

The installation should take about 10-15 mins (4 file edits, 2 phrase changes, 1 new template, 1 sql query, 1 new image).

In the Zip file, as it says.

As long as the proxy passes the client IP on in the standard http variables it will. Obviously it can't do anything about proxies that don't do this. I can't perform miracles.

Paul - I've installed your hack as per the instructions, but I'm getting IP addresses being saved by proxy users in the post table such as
192.168.1.7, 82.
172.26.106.249,
unknown, 10.255.
10.20.5.2, 194.2

I'm regarding this is quite a serious error as IP information needs to be correct.

Is this code in error?

Hi Spinball,

This problem is corrected in v1.1 - which has a better ip extraction and check.

The steps to update are in the new zip file.

Thanks. I'll keep an eye on it. For the bad IP addresses, I'll just edit out anything after the first 4 numbers and in the case of them having 'unknown' in the text I'll leave them blank. Do you agree with this course of action?
FYI I have installed this hack and the IP Info hack so my moderators can track down the morons causing trouble with duplicate registrations and proxys.

Yes, if you really need to edit old records that are in error then that would work. I'm not sure it is worth the effort, depends on how many you have I suppose.

Well I didn't write that hack, but by the sound of it you have a small error in the postbit_ip template. Make sure you have copyied that part correctly.
