Hi All

A few months back we had ppls from Turkey constantly downloadin 1 map pack (250meg). Over a a period of 12 to 15hrs they used up 250gig of bandwidth. When I checked the access log file I noticed the following from thier IP's
Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

I have changed the Download folder to 444 at the moment, but need it open for members to download from.

I have installed the NSN GR Downloads module
Only group members can view the Downloads
I have blocked thier IPs within Nuke Sentinel

If I put the folllowing in to the address bar Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! it brings up the save file box

What is the best way if possible to stop this?
Would it make any diffrence if I placed the downloads within the NSN GR Downloads module ?

Cheers

Scrop

Hi jakec

First cheers for the link, however I did search the forums for Hotlink and Direct links, since I did not find a solution my last resort was to post for advise.

Cheers

Remember you can use 'and' and 'or' when searching to narrow your searches down. Very Happy
