This hack makes the forum always use the members real ip if 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).

For example ;

* The real ip 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.

Note: This hack relies on the proxy server passing the correct http variables to allow detection. If they are not passed then detection will not work. By definition, annonymous proxies do not pass on these variables.

If a proxy is detected, then a red ip icon is displayed instead of the standard one.

To install, download and unzip the files and follow the instructions in the text file.

This modification involves changes to the class_core.php file - if you upgrade your vbulletin, you must reapply those changes.
If you forget these edits, the modification will continue to work for forum posts only (v4.0.4 +).

Looks to be the same as last time "Remember that this modification involves changes to the class_core.php file - if you upgrade your vbulletin, you must reapply those changes."

I was hoping that change would no longer be needed since I forget to update that file after each upgrade lol

Well thanks for the update. tagged for when I upgrade to vb4.

Its impossible to do it without file edits, since it involves php constants which once set cannot be altered (and I dont think the hook system is even initialised at the point the ip address information is extracted). I have managed to reduce it to just one edit this time though, instead of four.

Read the notes ;

This hack relies on the proxy server passing the correct http variables to allow detection. If they are not passed then detection will not work. By definition, annonymous proxies do not pass on these variables.

Sorry, I read that and wasn't 100% sure whether annonymous proxies meant web bassed proxies.

Thanks anyway
