Can I forbid an IP to access my forum

Hello
There's a bot has an IP from Chain.
Everyday he registers a new account, activates his account and posts ads replies, even though I'm using reCAPTCHA system.
So I want to forbid this IP to access my forum.
Can I do that?

Thanks

Go to your Admin Panel > Vbulletin Options > User Banning Options

there you will be able to list your banned IP's, If you want to ban one ip place the whole number there, if you want to ban an entire range then just use the first 3 number followed by a dot like this

213.

Good luck

You can also ban an ip via htaccess or iptables. It really depends on how much access you have to your server.
