Topic: Need help with an IP range ban

I'm trying to ban an IP range.

Hypothetically speaking (not the genuine IP here), if I wanted to ban everything from 11.000.000.000 to 13.000.000.000 how exactly to do I do that from the admin bans window?

I've tried using asterisks and it's not a fan of that. I also tried just banning

11.000.
12.000.
13.000.

But that doesn't cover it either.

I just now tried inputing this into the field, with spaces between the addresses:

11.000.000.000 13.999.999.999

Is that going to get it done?

Re: Need help with an IP range ban

No, no that's not going to get it done.

So... Go ahead and treat my like I am brand new. Explain to me as though I am five, exactly how to ban an IP range, please.

If it matters, I am using version PunBB 1.2.16

Re: Need help with an IP range ban

Erm... Okay, follow up question.

Let's say the IP range is 11.11.xxx.xxx to 11.13.xxx.xxx

In other words, his IP always starts with 11.11, 11.12 or 11.13, but has various numbers for the last 6 digits of each.

In other words, I want to block these, but not say... 11.09.

I just want to block anything that starts with one of these three:

11.11.
11.12.
11.13.

How will I block that?

Apologies for the newbish questions. Just trying to get my head around it so that I don't have to trouble anyone again.

Thanks!

Re: Need help with an IP range ban

To correct my answer to the first post, you should have
11 12 13
since you don't want to allow people on 11.001.something

Re: Need help with an IP range ban

Can you show me an example?

Pretend for a minute that I want to ban all IPs that match the following (where x is any number):

11.11.xxx.xxx
11.12.xxx.xxx
11.13.xxx.xxx

Can you show me using a screen cap exactly what I put into the ban field to get this to work properly? It's not my intent to be a pest, but it's not working on test accounts. I'm still getting in.

11.11.0.0/16 might also work - it would ban the range 11.11.0.0 - 11.11.255.255.

That is, if CIDR notation is supported.

Re: Need help with an IP range ban

sirena: It isn't.
Alastor: Go to admin bans, click on "Add" next to username, which takes you to the "advanced" page. Then enter
11.11 11.12 11.13
as the IP.

Like this? This is accompanied with results by the way:


Click for pic.

The top image is how I input it and the second is the ban it produced in the admin window. Is this correct?

Re: Need help with an IP range ban
