Hey all, i just got sentinel installed and it already blocked an ip from trying to get info from my admin section. The ip is 66.249.66.39 , I looked it up and it says google, but is this a google bot or an intruder?
If its a google bot, I DO want them to check my site, not sure about my admin stuff though. But if this is a normal thing, like google spiders, I want it to be able to index my site, so how do I unblock it?

That is Google. What do you have in your robots.txt file?

This is a copy of my robots.txt file

User-agent: Mediapartners-Google*
Disallow:
User-agent: *
Disallow: admin.php
Disallow: /admin/
Disallow: /images/
Disallow: /includes/
Disallow: /themes/
Disallow: /blocks/
Disallow: /modules/
Disallow: /language/

Can I get rid of the robot.txt file completely, I mean I know I can, but what will be the result?

Sentinel just caught another one trying to access my admin panel, but they were trying to look in the flazh nav box I have. Is this a normal thing, I mean should they be doing this and is it dangerous to my site?
The new IP it caught was 66.249.65.165. If this is normal for search engines, then how do I unban them?

Go into Sentinel and the blocked IP menu. Choose display blocked IP's and find your ip and remove it.

If you are also writing to .htaccess you will need to remove the ip from there too.

Ok, I was able to unban the google bots, but it just keeps banning them. I added googles ip range to the protected list and it STILL bans them! How do I keep it from banning the google bots? I need them to be able to spider my site.

Where can I find an uninstall script, or directions. If this thing is going to ban google everytime they try to index me, and there is no way to unban them and KEEP them unbanned, then I dont want it.
Please tell me how to uninstall sentinel.

You do not need to uninstall NukeSentinel. Google and Yahoo come stock and standard protected ranges. In your protected range admin panel, just add any ranges that you need. If those ranges are already in there, then you have to make sure that you don't have the IP's in the ban table nor in .htaccess.

I added them to the protected range, removed them from the banned ip list, and removed them from the htaccess file. But, it still keeps banning them.

If you are not using NukeSentinel v2.1.3, please upgrade and see if you still have the problem.

I am getting the same thing. I have to turn off the admin ban to allow google through. I have admin.php blocked in the .htaccess file but somehow they get through and get banned. I hope there is a resolution for this.

Reverse your installation steps.

Have you made sure that your robots.txt has, at a minimum, these lines:

User-agent: *
Disallow: admin.php
Disallow: /admin/

It has
Code:
User-agent: Mediapartners-Google*

Disallow:


User-agent: *
Disallow: /admin
Disallow: admin.php



Is that right?

I had problems with these lines:
User-agent: Mediapartners-Google*
Disallow:

That is your problem, imo. You are telling Google that it has access to everything at your site. remove these lines:
Code:
User-agent: Mediapartners-Google* 

Disallow:


That should fix it. You could also do
Code:
User-agent: Mediapartners-Google* 

Disallow: /admin
Disallow: admin.php

Thanks for the quick reply. I have removed those two lines. I should know within an hour or so if that fixes it.

I finally got it to stop banning them. I had added googles ip range to the protected ip range once but it didnt register or something. I added it again and it has been 3 days since it has banned anyone

I removed the two lines specified by raven from the robots.txt file and added the IP's and have been okay also since.

I just installed Nuke Sentinel 2.1.1. I was referred to this post, as Google is blocked from "harvesting" news from my site.

I didn't have anything in the Protested Range menu. So I added some IP ranges which I thought weere googlebots. But, should there already be IP ranges in the protected IP Range?

Is there a way to add them using the install scripts? I ran an "new install" of Sentinel, when I was really upgrading. Is this why I don't have the ranges in there?

I've been kind of searching for those ranges but the best collection I have found on the net is this list of googlebot ips Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

I use Gmail (google e-mail) and i recived a link to a website with Sentinal installed and it banned me automatically. And now I cannot acess this website, unless I get a response from the owner of this website. Does this help at all? It may be that gmail uses a file to link to the website that the link points to therefore acting as a possible security threat as it probably uses the method; post. Please tell me if this the link to your website so I can do a test email me the link at Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!
