FORMALLY KNOWN AS TOR ALERT! PROXY ALERT TAKES CONTROL OF YOUR FORUMS WITH THE NEXT LEVEL OF PROTECTION! 3.8 VERSION HERE.

I've searched high and low for a modification that can detect Tor or proxy users. Personally I've had one too many banned members just create another identity and troll about. Now let proxies and TOR... Give you problems NO MOR! Now when those pesky proxy and Tor users visit your site, you can block them and redirect them to a custom error message!

You can also alert your members that proxies and Tor is not a nice thing to use! You can customize the message and it also allows to be closed.

It's not working for blocking webproxies.
I also tried with template edits off and {vb:raw toralert} added to navbar template.
Here is the site I used for testing http://www.proxyonline.ro
My website is https://www.gamemaniacs.ro
I am using the v4 pro version.

Yes it is but it seems it's not blocking all the proxies.
Check my example.

Hmmmm... experiencing lots of problems here. Hoping for some help.

Bought the Pro version as I'm really only interested in restricting proxy registrations. Unfortunately, it just doesn't work. Tried all manner of combination of the settings, but it doesn't seem to be able to restrict registrations without restricting overall viewing access to site.

Added to that, should you be interested only in alerting rather than restricting, the red notification is very flaky... sometimes it shows, sometimes it doesn't when viewing via a webproxy. Seems to show initially, but then arbitrarily decides to disappear. Not sure if that's a feature of the proxy services I was testing with. The alert message also appears to have problems with long strings when defining a custom message.

Tried reinstalling which worked initially, but then experienced the same issues.

"Redirect to blank" seems to work on the forum pages, but not article/CMS pages. Straightforward "redirects" didn't seem to work and custom error was not shown. Usually results in Not Found error: "The requested URL /forum/proxy.php was not found on this server. Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."

Ack... not quite there yet. Shame, because it's exactly what most sites need in order to operate an effective (and meaningful) discipline system.

Have the pro version and it is blocking google saying it is using a proxy can you add something in so it does not block google some kind of box that we can add what bots we want to allow or whatever you think will fix this problem.

Yea I am still working on the CMS support, I can't seem to find a hook that works. As far as the popup, the web proxy may be removing scripts.

I think the big issue for me was that it didn't prevent registration... which is really what I bought it for. The number of idiots we have using proxies as a means of creating troll accounts meant that this feature is sorely needed.

Perhaps I've set it up wrong?

Much needed for this.

Everything has to be enabled for Registration to be blocked, this will be fixed in the next release. I have gotten really busy with a project from work. I'll see if I can't finalize this tonight.
