    Exclamation Duplicate IP Report GOLD & Recent Registration Check GOLD by BOP5

    Two Mods for the Price of one! ($10)

    My Duplicate IP Report Gold mod adds new features to my popular free version of the mod. The purpose of the original, free, version was to run a report daily (usually overnight) that checks the POST table and USER table for any duplicate IP addresses (being shared by more than 1 user.) If duplicates were found in either the post or user table a list of the user affected (and optional link to specified posts) were reported in the form of a new thread. The free version offered extensive white-listing capabilities allowing you to ignore duplicates by username, IP address, and other common options.

    The Gold version of this mod of course includes all of the free version options but also includes a new system to run the reports on demand, at anytime via the Admin CP. Easily set report parameters, optionally use your existing white-list settings, and the final report will have usernames and IP addresses linked to the appropriate back-end (Admin CP) pages for quick access.

    In addition the Gold version allows you to have the nightly report post as either a new thread (part of the free version) OR post into an existing thread as a new post- so you don't have a new thread created every night.

    But wait... there's more!

    I also created a mod based on similar code called "Recent Registration Check" that I custom programmed for someone who later didn't want it. I am releasing a GOLD version of that mod for the first time here, giving you access to both mods for the same subscription.

    The Recent Registration Check mod is not heavily documented, but it is just an XML file to import as usual. You go to settings to enable and set the mod and it should be self explanatory from there. Feel free to post any questions.

    Recent Registration Check will check the IP address of anyone attempting to register to your forum and see if the same address has been used recently to register before. The purpose is to block spammers/scammers who try to register multiple accounts quickly. You can choose how often the same IP address can be reused for registration and how much time they need to wait before registering again with the same address. You can deny registration for such users or put their account in the moderation queue.

    Both mods have been tested on VB 3.8 and VB 4.x and should work on VB 3.7, 3.8, and all 4.x versions.

    Live Demo: http://www.qapla.com/mods/showthread.php/433-Duplicate-IP-Report-for-05-07-2012 (scroll down for latest version)
    
    
    ========== PURPOSE / ABOUT ==========
    
    
    This mod will run a nightly scan of your "post" and/or "user" tables. It will report if it finds any users sharing the same IP address. You choose in the options how many days back you want to look for each table. There is a hard coded max of 5000 days, but I stongly urgre far smaller numbers. Somewhere in the matter of 1 to 14 days for posts and 30 to 90 days on registrations, with smaller numbers for busier, more popular forums.
    
    
    In the GOLD version you can also run these reports at anytime directly via the Admin CP. 
    
    
    If any "duplicate use" is found the IP addresses, usernames and optionally the posts themselves will be reported.
    
    
    The report takes the form of a new thread posted to the forum of the Admin's choosing (A private forum for mods or admins is strongly recommended.) In the GOLD version you can choose to post each report as a new post into an existing thread. 
    
    
    There are options for whitelisting (ignoring) specific IP Addresses and/or userids so if you or your mods login as other users you can prevent that from being reported. If you use the Zoints Anonymous Posting mod you will want to put that userid on the whitelist else the report will out whoever posted "Anonymously."
    
    
    NOTE: There are PERFECTLY valid reasons 2 or more users may share the same IP address. This report in and of itself is not proof of malicious activity. Users that connect by mobile devices, work in same offices, or go to the same schools for example would likely share the same IP address on some posts. So would too any users connecting from the same home or public Wi-Fi network.
    
    
    =========== COMPATIBILITY ===========
    
    
    Tested and working on VB 3.8.7 and 4.2.0 and should work on all 3.7/3.8 and 4.x versions of vBulletin.
    
    
    ========= BACKUP / WARNING ==========
    
    
    This mod does NOT alter your database however it is always good practice to keep regular backups and you should backup before installing ANY new mod.
    
    
    As always mods are USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. I will try to help if I can but no guarantee is offered or implied.
    
    
    
    
    ========= INSTALL or UPGRADE ========
    
    
    To Install: 
    Upload all folders and files in the UPLOAD directory to the forum root directory
    In Admin CP go to Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product
    Click on "Choose File" and browse to the product xml file that was packaged in the .zip file.
    Click "Import"
    
    
    To Upgrade:
    Upload all folders and files in the UPLOAD directory to the forum root directory (Overwrite if necessary)
    In Admin CP go to Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product
    Click on "Choose File" and browse to the product xml file that was packaged in the .zip file.
    Change "Allow Overwrite" to YES
    Click "Import"
    
    
    You MUST set your settings to enable the mod.
    Each setting has an explanation of its use and example settings if applicable.
    
    
    You can edit the Scheduled Task "Duplicate IP Report by BOP5" to edit when and how often the report runs.
    
    
    The GOLD version uses phrases for reports run directly in the Admin CP that can be translated if necessary.
    
    
    The nightly report that goes into a new thread/post must be editted manually by editting the bop5_dupeip.php file directly. No phrases are used for output of the nightly report at this time.
