Re: Is there any easy lag-free way to block IP ranges?

Turns out that in addition to the blackholing I was just long overdue for a /clearobjects on that server (last time I did was over 6 months ago). It had gotten so bad that I was getting weird packet errors when trying to connect today. I hate doing a /clearobjects because everyone loses all their ta...

I'm running it on a VPS, provider is Linode. I have hundreds of thousands of IPs blackholed though.

Re: Is there any easy lag-free way to block IP ranges?

The most efficient way on Linux is to use `ipset` as it can be used to define network ranges, and then block them using `iptables` if they match the `ipset`. There are many guides that cover the topic, here's one that I think does a good job: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ipset How is that d...

Re: Minetest Discord chat with voice!

I'm always skeptical of proprietary platforms like this one, sorry. And remember that "servers" are not servers at all, and are not owned or leased by the individuals as servers are. I learned that the hard way when because of VPN use I got locked out of my account and Discord demanded my...

Re: Is there any easy lag-free way to block IP ranges?

"ip route add blackhole" on large ranges seems to introduce a bit of lag and slowness (probably about 2-10 at most) but not to the extent of being unplayable (the 20-40 I was getting with iptables). Thank you!

Re: Is there any easy lag-free way to block IP ranges?

Since you are talking about iptables and supposedly have linux: ip route add blackhole 192.168.178.5/29 is the way to go there... 192.168.178.5 is the IP, /29 is the bitmask to use for the range. https://www.aelius.com/njh/subnet_sheet.html Will that avoid the lag issues I just described when doing...

I don't know how to create mods, and I don't know what on_joinplayer is. Does anything exist, even something that has nothing to do with Minetest? (Preferably something that has nothing to do with Minetest.)

Is there any easy lag-free way to block IP ranges?

Hi, I need a way to block IP ranges, to block griefers who have several IDs consisting of different IPs in the same two ranges, as well as people who have made threats to hack my server. The only way I know of that would do this would be iptables, but inspecting every single packet against hundreds ...

how about allowing each player to only place a max. number of protector-blocks ?


Why discourage players from building more elsewhere or expanding existing buildings?

When they changed Protector Redo from steel bar to gold bar I went along with it, since it's too easy for people to just dump them everywhere and never finish things.

Re: [Mod] Extended Ban v2 [xban2]

Could you please add the ability to ban IP ranges? Currently the only way to do this is iptables which can cause massive server lag if the range is too large.

Thinking of resurrecting my old PvP server - questions

Hi, I don't know if anyone remembers my short-lived PvP server, The Shootout. Basically it was intended as a server where one would start in a tiny spawn castle (similar to the spawn building in The Valleys, but smaller and with no roof), and would leave into a flat map, building defenses with cobbl...

Re: ANNOUNCE: "THE CREATIVE GARDENS" Server

Krypt aka starfire, I feel horrible and am very sorry for breaking your stuff. It was entirely my fault, and only someone with admin powers can break protection blocks, not griefers which is what you thought. More info on my goof in fighting a nasty griefer here.
