Permanent IP blacklisting – not working as expected?

Postby copet80 » 25 Jun 2013, 05:25

Hi there,

We are attempting to add a number of IP addresses to a permanent blacklist to prevent them ever accessing our Smartfox instances.

We are using the Server Configurator, and specifically the IP filter blacklist.

We have added the IP addresses to the blacklist and performed tests, however the test user is able to access our server despite being on the blacklist. Does it take a period of time for this ban to take effect? Is there any reason why our tester can access the instance from an IP address that is on our blacklist?

We need to do this to prevent certain IP addresses from accessing the game. The ban manager is not a suitable tool because it requires the user to be currently logged in for us to make the ban. We want to ban a series of IP addresses now to prevent any future attempted access.

Please let me know how to use the IP filter to prevent these IP addresses accessing the server at any time.

Just make sure to restart the server after having added the IPs in the black list.
