NukeSentinel is a Great product (shameless plug) and it keeps getting better! One of the features that will be added (eventually) will be the ability to exclude IP's from danger. I need this right now as search engines (the safe ones) sometime's get banned because they try to index a post that gets filtered. GoogleBot gets offended when you slap him ROTFL so I have a simple way to protect any IP range which I want. It does involve adding some manual code to includes/sentinel.php but it is only a few lines. I could make it an 'include' type logic, but this really is a 'kiss' method, which I like Smile.

Step 1 - BACKUP includes/sentinel.php
Step 2 - In includes/sentinel.php, find (around line 132)
Code:
$ip = explode(".", $remote);
and add these lines after it. Now I am including the logic for GoogleBot and Yahoo Search Engines that I am concerned with. You can modify and/or add new ones as you see fit. I would be very conservative in allowing Smile
Code:
/****** isAllowedByMe    ******/

$isAllowedByMe = FALSE;
/****** protect Goolebot ******/
if ($ip[0]==66 AND $ip[1]==249 AND $ip[2]>=64 AND $ip[2]<=79)  $isAllowedByMe = TRUE;
/****** protect Yahoo    ******/
if ($ip[0]==66 AND $ip[1]==196 AND $ip[2]>=64 AND $ip[2]<=127) $isAllowedByMe = TRUE;
/****** protect Yahoo    ******/
/****** isAllowedByMe    ******/

Step 3 - In includes/sentinel.php, find (around line 654)
Code:
function block_ip($ip, $banuser, $bantime, $blocker_row, $abmatch="") {
and add these lines after it
Code:
  global $isAllowedByMe;

  if ($isAllowedByMe) return;

That should do it Wink

On your code Smile once I finish the "Blocked Ranges" i'll be starting "Protected Ranges" Wink so that you can enter the range of say google's bots and they will never need to worry about being blocked.

These are the last two items on my "To Do" list that I got from you on things you would like to see in hte next version. Yes, it's taken me awhile but I've been a busy little coder Bang Head

Please let me know your conception of the associated reliability/usability related to next source - I'd really like to hear your point of view.

An example of what you would enter into the protected ranges from a snipplet of your:
Code:
202.212.5.30

202.212.5.32
202.212.5.33
202.212.5.34
202.212.5.35
202.212.5.36
202.212.5.37
202.212.5.38
202.212.5.39
202.212.5.47
202.212.5.48


Translates to:
Code:
202.212.5.30 - 202.212.5.48


Or if you did an IP Lookup on those you could make it:
Code:
202.212.0.0 - 202.215.255.255


Of course this solely an example and the results may not bear out that the last range be correct Smile

Raven, may I ask why the line number would differ so much from one to the other? Mine were a little bit further away than around...

I was just interested as to what causes them to differ from one to another... perhaps individual customization? Smile

Version number would be the cause of them differing on line numbers Smile

The only problem I've found with the list is it doesn't list their ranges , just single ip's. Other then that it seems to be a fairly reliable listing. I haven't checked each one myself though. You can check each ip yourself by using: Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! . Keep in mind that not all Yahoo IP's will have Yahoo listed as the owner and that the list is a "Use at your own risk" list.

From my site I have built this list of Crawlers that I exclude from being tracked since I can prove they are crawlers(by the way they move thru the site from the Tracked IP's system):
Code:
INSERT INTO nuke_nsnst_excluded_ranges VALUES (1113513984, 1113518079, '0', 'Yahoo Search', 'us');

INSERT INTO nuke_nsnst_excluded_ranges VALUES (1118019584, 1118027775, '0', 'Yahoo Search', 'us');
INSERT INTO nuke_nsnst_excluded_ranges VALUES (1120157696, 1120174079, '0', 'Yahoo Search', 'us');
INSERT INTO nuke_nsnst_excluded_ranges VALUES (1123631104, 1123635199, '0', 'Google Search', 'us');
INSERT INTO nuke_nsnst_excluded_ranges VALUES (3475898368, 3475963903, '0', 'MSN Search', 'us');
INSERT INTO nuke_nsnst_excluded_ranges VALUES (3477372928, 3477393407, '0', 'MSN Search', 'us');
