Proxy IP to real IP conversion
Mod Version: 3.7.003, by Paul M (Member) Paul M is offline

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.

Good work, Paul. Does this version work with 3.6? (Can you please add a note in post #1?)

More and more proxy servers these days do not pass on the required variables. Unfortunately there is nothing that can be done about them.

How well does this work for AOL users? Will their Ip's be detected?

As I recall, AOL proxy servers do not pass on the details.

Just wondering, is this a fairly generic way of detecting proxies, or could you extend this, and take a look at proxies manually that are currently not being detected and get them to be detected in a future update?
