BlockIpAddress

Tags:

WARNING

This function was added in SA-MP 0.3z R2-2 and will not work in earlier versions!

Description

Blocks an IP address from further communication with the server for a set amount of time (with wildcards allowed). Players trying to connect to the server with a blocked IP address will receive the generic "You are banned from this server." message. Players that are online on the specified IP before the block will timeout after a few seconds and, upon reconnect, will receive the same message.

Name Description
ip_address The IP to block.
timems The time (in milliseconds) that the connection will be blocked for. 0 can be used for an indefinite block.

Returns

This function does not return any specific values.

Examples

public OnRconLoginAttempt(ip[], password[], success)
{
    if(!success) // if they supplied a bad password
    {
        BlockIpAddress(ip, 60 * 1000); // block the connections from this ip for one minute
    }
    return 1;
}

Notes

TIP

Wildcards can be used with this function, for example blocking the IP '6.9..' will block all IPs where the first two octets are 6 and 9 respectively. Any number can be in place of an asterisk.

  • UnBlockIpAddress: Unblock an IP that was previously blocked.
  • OnIncomingConnection: Called when a player is attempting to connect to the server.
