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

Yes it's in the options in the AdminCP just disable Tor and Web proxy alert.

What do you mean? Have you used TOR and it's letting you in?

Ref my purchase of Proxy Alert Pro.

I have had a couple of my forum members complain that they can't connect to the forum as they are being flagged as using a proxy. Checking out their IPs they are using either US cable company or ATT cell/mobile internet connections. I did think about whitelisting the IP ranges associated with those companies but the Whitelist function in the Proxy Alert section of the ACP does not allow ranges to be input using CIDR notation and so it would entail listing approx 75,000 odd IPs for each company to cover all 3 of the ranges.

Please would you be able to suggest a better solution?

I did check to see whether I have the most current version of Proxy Alert Pro through the link in my purchase e-mail and it looks like I already have the most current version of 1.93?

Also Redirect To Message does nothing for me. I have to use Redirect To Blank Page to get the software to take any action.

Thanks ForceHSS I will try that.

The thing is though the biggest thing I'm trying to use this mod for is to scan non logged in members/guests to try and stop hacking activity so I have it set to scan members and non-members. What you suggest might be a workaround if the members concerned still have a forum cookie on their PCs with their login credentials in.


Do you know if there's anyway to get in touch with the developer of this mod? Does he provide support to those that have purchased the pro version?

I disabled it for now until I can get in touch with the mod author on the 2 issues I found. The main one being the blocking of non-proxy connections as proxy connections. It was generating too many member complaints and cutting my traffic.
