bannedips.cfg

Post by Pierce » Sat Aug 09, 2008 4:31 am

I never worked with this in all the years. So i have a small question, if
i understood the explanation right.

Just two examples:

Example A

Code: Select all

BannedIP
{
    IPMatch 218.235.0.0/255.255.0.0
}
Example B

Code: Select all

BannedIP
{
    IPMatch 218.235.0.0/255.255.255.0
}

If i put example A into the bannedips.cfg, Pol would block the ip range
from 218.235.0.0 to 218.235.255.255

If i put example B into the bannedips.cfg, Pol would block the ip range
from 218.235.0.0 to 218.235.0.255

Is this correct?

This one came from Folko, a former dev of our shard and well known dev here...

Code: Select all

//Hints from Folko:
//   Each IP or Mask needs an own entry.
//   Masks have to be like this:
//   "IPMatch 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0"
//   That would ban 192.168.0.*
//   "IPMatch 192.168.0.0/255.255.0.0"
//   That would ban 192.168.*.*.
//   "IPMatch 192.0.0.0/255.0.0.0"
//   That would ban 192.*.*.*, but mask 255.0.0.0 shouldn't be used because it would ban too much.
//   Note that 1.2.3.4/255.255.255.0 would also work, it would ban 1.2.3.*
//   It is pointless to ban users which show in POL but not ingame; the bans are only enforced
//   after authentication.
