This hack will allow you to prevent guests/users from using proxies at your forum. You can dissallow proxies for the forum as a whole or to prevent only registrations with proxies. You can enable and disable it at the Acp of your forum where you can control the settings for the mod.

Note: As you know there is no such way of preventing proxies 100% but it helps a lot. I tested it with a dozen proxies and it stopped 8 of them.

You Rule,
I needed this!

An option to change the 'Not Allowed' Template would be nice

Thanks for all your feedbacks/comments guys. Appreciate them

@Rickpwns, atm I don''t have much free time to edit the mod, maybe later on. In meanwhile you can change the error text at the xml file.

Pretty useless mod, as it will only detect low privacy proxies that forward client information - people that use proxies for anonymity measures which provide a standard level of security wont be detected by this. Try it out for yourself.

There are like millions of proxies out there. There is no way to detect all of them.

Exactly.
This mod is useless, as it wont detect any actual proxies but just block registration access for everyone using a low-anonymity-proxy sometimes necessary for working within special networks or given to you by some providers.

Then don''t use it. Instead of repeating yourself like a broken record, either find another mod, or create your own. What can I say.

I just wanted to point out that its pretty useless and annoying to have this mod installed since it will only bug legit users and not those using anonym proxies.
Didnt mean to offend you, but... thats just the way it is. Besides, a fsockopen on every page load seems like a really, REALLY bad idea... I mean REALLY bad. And basically youre blocking everyone with port 80 forwarded, which seems like an idea far worse...

Technically there is no real possibility to find out wether a user is using an anonym proxy or not. You'll have to rely on your mods if you have troublemakers coming again and again...
