Proxy IP to Real IP Conversion
Mod Version: 3.8.001, by Paul M (Member) Paul M is offline

vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (32 votes - 4.78 average) Installs: 637

This modification is no longer available.

The latest vBulletin 3 version (3.8.11) has the same built in system as vB 4.2, that system should be used instead.


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).

For example ;

* 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.

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:

v3.8.001 : Initial release for vbulletin 3.8.


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

There is no significant difference between the 3.7 & 3.8 versions.

Problem... I have a style that uses PNGs. So now my IP image is not displaying because it's broken.

No - and that would be a very bad thing to do.

Trolls are unlikely to use a proxy server that is detectable.

I just noticed, you have to check the POSt and not view "whos online", be just a bit careful, those with Iphones show up as Proxys.

good hack, thanks Paul

Paul, am I way off on what I said here? Is this what this mod does ^^^
