I got a problem on my server, that I ban ppl, their IP that is, and they keep changing it and coming back, is there a way to stop them from coming back even after they change IP? im affrid one day they will just change name and I wont be able to ban them on spot because I wouldent know who they are, and besides I just want them banned of my server. Other thing is there is this hacker, who keeps sending crashing bots to my server, like f94384l2, with those types of names, and I cant stop it, and he crashed my server few times now with other ways too, is there a place to report hackers and that somebody will deal them? Sry if this isnt the right place to post this I just thought since its helping section it would right to put it here, Thanks ahead for anwsering.

Ban their IP range.

As for the bots, you can prevent that by disabling bots. If that doesn't work, make sure your server is v1.01. There may be a security patch of some sort that was distributed to server hosting companies, I've heard mutterings about it, so it may be worth looking into.

And, change your admin and RCON passwords if you suspect they've been compromised.


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

Someone told me that if il ban someone from washintong, I mean his range, then all ppl from washingtong will be banned, and that is something I dont want to be, is there a way to make range smaller? and what about ppl who change their entire IP?

If you really want to get rid of a troublemaker with a dynamic IP, ban ranges is the only way to go.

You can do an IP range ban at any stage, so if you use it cleverly, you won't need to knock out a whole city.

As for changing their entire IP... Well, I don't know about America, but here in Europe, people don't choose their IPs, they get them assigned by their ISP. So, it's doubtful anyone can willingly change their entire IP address.

I myself have a dynamic IP which changes every time I disconnect then reconnect, and I'll only get a completely different IP once a month, at the most.

There is an alternative method - try and find out if they have a DNS hostname, and if they do, enter their hostname instead of the IP. That way, whenever they connect to the net with that DNS hostname enabled, it is, in effect, a lockout.

Other than that, there's not much you can do.

I didn't know you can ban a DNS hostname. Have you really done that to people ?

Well can you give me the way to dynamic ban ppl? And is there a place I can report on hackers on jka, like Lucasarts forums or somewhere else? I heard about some ppl got banned from Jedi Academy for hacking, dunno if its true thought.

No one can ban someone from the whole game if that's what you mean. I think you can report people to their ISP's for crashing etc, but I know at least in the USA, ISP's don't seem to care much anyway. A "Dynamic IP ban" would be if someone had the IP 999.999.999.999 and you did AddIP 999.999.999.0 etc. That would ban anything 999.999.999 regardless of the last few numbers. You might also want to add the persons IP to the server.cfg Ban list so that persons IP stays banned even if the server gets rebooted etc. If the first 2 or 3 parts of their IP also change, not much you can do without banning a ton of people. What mod is your server using anyway ? Just curious.

Lugormod, if il do 999.999.999 it will ban only him and ppl around him? And what can I do about hackers? nothing else?

Hi: As you prolly know, replace the 999.999.999.0 with hackers real IP, the "9s" are just an example. And yes, it should only ban him and those around him. I don't know alot about Lugormod but I can find out perhaps. What version are you using and what exactly does this hacker do to your server? If it's crashing, there are several ways to crash a JKA server, regardless of the mod you are using, but some can be fixed (not sure if this is your problem or not)

Well from outside his sending crashing bots, they dont join the server, they just connect, and block other players from joining, this is like server list: PLayer 1 score ping bla etc etc Here: f43904504ll - - - (they havent came yet) d49038403098i - - - Like this, once there was 16 of those. The version is 1.1 of Lugormod, could be replaced soon, but thats the point. I know he can crash server when his on, thats why I want to ban him so he wont come back, the bots I mostly stops by restarting map if I get to it on time, once he even made it to get the rcon.
