This modification has been withdrawn.
vBulletin 4.0.x and 4.1.x are no longer supported.

For vBulletin 4.2.x please use the built in reverse proxy detection.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


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 +).

Hi Paul, I did as instructed and did a overwrite of the 4.1.7 version, and my admincp went to white and showed only this "" (Firefox). I managed to enter admincp with IE and uninstalled the mod again, after that I could access through Firefox again. I double checked everything and did a fresh new install but the same happened.

Any idea what causes this?

Update: I found that I had saved the class_core.php in UTF-8 format the first time around so I saved it in ANSI instead, that helped but I still can't get the mod to work. I don't find any proxy IPs in the forums and there's no red IP button to be seen either. :s

I take it you read the note

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.

Hi Paul, great mod, thank you.

One question please. Do I have to upload the image in all my custom themes buttons folder, or just the default folder?

Thanks.

You will need to upload it to individual themes.

Out of interest....do you know why that happened? It doesn't seem to make a lot of sense.
Honestly, I'm surprised this functionality isn't already included in the base vB package, now that you're doing part-time work for them.

Edit: Nevermind I found it.

I don't see a red ip icon when someone is under a proxy, and also the only two things that i see when I click on an ip is the actual ip, and the ip lisiting.

Thanks this looks like something pretty useful, things like this should be built into VB I think.
