hello,

I am having trouble with a player always evading permaban. He uses different IP address each time, but every one of them from the 37.x.x.x range. I want to ban that range completely so I won't have to deal with him again. Is there some script for this?

you can do /banip 37.0.0.0/8 <duration> <reason>
but that would mean banning 1/256 of the world.
Temporary IP-range bans may also help scare the troublemaker away while allowing potential new players from that ip range to join in the future.

If you cant reduce the range and you dont want to ban inocents then I recomend looking into other methods, either through pysnip scripting or irc bots (if your server connects to irc).

I have been using mirc and its scripting language to deal with situations like this. "entered the game" messages usually contain name and ip, so I use a combination of those to filter some troublemakers out. mirc scripting is also very easy to learn if you arent scared of coding or simple math.

Hope I helped, good luck dealing with those ban evaders.

Thank you very much for your help. I'll see what can I do, as I don't want to ban innocent people.
