    Description
    This plugin's purpose is to kick anyone who tries to join your server with a VPN. It does it by checking from this website whether the client who is joining your server is using a VPN or not.
    It then saves the ip and whether it's a proxy to a database so it doesn't need to check the same ip many times.
    You can use either mysql or sqlite database with this plugin.

    The plugin creates a log file to sourcemod/logs/VPNBlock_Log.txt and logs everyone who tries to join the server with a VPN.

    Admin commands (require flag z)
    PHP Code:
    sm_vbwhitelist "<SteamID>" Whitelists a steamid which is allowed to join even with a VPN.
    sm_vbunwhitelist "<SteamID>" Removes a steamid from whitelist
    CVars
    CVars are saved to your cfg/sourcemod/VPNBlock.cfg file.

    PHP Code:
    // 1 = Kick and log client when he tries to join with a VPN 0 = only log
    vpnblock_kickclients "1"

    // If the response contains this it means the player is using a VPN.
    vpnblock_response "Y"

    // The url used to check proxies.
    vpnblock_url "http://proxy.mind-media.com/block/proxycheck.php?ip={IP}" 
    Required extensions
    Installation
    • Make sure you have Steamworks installed.
    • Upload smx and translation file to your server
    • (Optional) Add a new entry called "VPNBlock" to your databases.cfg. If this entry is not found the default entry is used.

    I have never used that plugin so I'm not sure actually. At least that it uses a different database for the proxies which might be a good or a bad thing. I have used this on my server for couple of weeks now and I haven't yet found a single vpn that gets past it so it has worked well for me.

    I have checked pretty much everyone's ip who this plugin has blocked and I haven't yet found any false positives. Of course if you get those you can just change that ip's proxy column to 0 from mysql or sqlite so it doesn't block them. I don't know how many false positives does this plugin detect but that can of course only be fixed by changing the database.

    You need to spend time to create the list of bad IP addresses with CIDR-Blocker yourself.

    With this one, your server is calling a third party every time, to ask whether or not the IP is a proxy/VPN, and if it claims it is, it will act accordingly - and automated, without your you need to get your hands on the job with generating the list of bad IP addresses.

    Thought as much, thanks for the clarification. I'll make a switch shortly

    Define false positives? The plugin simply redirects all checks through a third-party, you can double check the IPs through other third-party websites such as ipqualityscore, some services have larger databases.

    Budget ISPs detecting as a proxy, shortly put. I am aware it's a third party service I just thought I'd mention that source doesn't seem to be as reliable as put.

    EDIT: I definitely think that there should be two checks put in place as I'm having a fair few people a day come to me asking to be unblocked and I'm checking their IPs and they're valid ISPs.
