Is their anything else which we you can use besides IP for finding duplicate users? A while back, one addon used Flash cookie to detect duplicate users. Any other option other then IP? Also this one works with IPv4 and IPv6? 

Only ip's currently but I'm open to suggestions. Flash might not be a good long term approach but maybe cookies.

I didn't specifically test with with IPv6 but the database and code supports it.

Dumb question...I have two new members who signed up who showed up as duplicate IP's but when I look them or the IP's reported up I don't see any other members listed with that IP.  Am I missing something ? 

Do you have the delete option used in the spam monitoring tool at all? It may have deleted the account due to the account being flagged as a likely spammer.

Hello,

As I read Geolocation accuracy is dependent on IPB4 itself. What I want to ask is, if this service needs active IPS license as my license has been expired on January, and I'm not sure if I'll renew it.

If not, then seems that something does not works well in my installation. For testing purposes, I've blocked my country (Greece), but still anybody from Greece can register.

Thank you

Chris

Can it also restrict visitors or only registrations? eg I want visitors from specific countries to get a message "Sorry, this site is not available to your country".

Currently on registrations but visits is something I can look at adding if there's enough demand for it.

Yes the Gelocation service IPS offers appear to require an active license. This is not something I'm likely to circumvent as the included solution works well.

But if you don't intend to renew your license, I can offer a refund for you.

So a list of the previous members that match the same ip address as the new member logged? Yes possible but not with the current version. I've noted this for a future version however.

I think a link to the ModCP IP tools in the post content would be sufficient, i.e. to /modcp/ip-tools/?ip=a.b.c.d

When changing the post content in the Geofirewall settings using https://www.example.org/modcp/ip-tools/?ip={member_ip} unfortunately does not work, as the variable's brackets are converted into %7B and %7D...

@Mike John Just realized that "Post before Registering" from v4.4 seems to trigger an entry in the duplicate Log, one for the Guest and one for the registered member.

When looking at the IP in the ACP IP Address Tools there is no history for that IP, all data is from today.

Could you please verify the issue?

Thank you,
Thomas

Yeah it's a bit of an annoyance. If you don't mind testing, I can put together a file edit you can apply that adds a new quick tag? Something like {member_ip_link} to link directly to the ip tools page.

Are you seeing any duplicates in the "core_members" database directly? See the ip_address field.

Sure, if I can help 👍

Not for the a.m. user named 'Talo": I find only one entry.

Please have a look
