Link IP Mod

Print Post  
Just a simple mod that I thought of that will turn your users' IP addresses into links that connect to DNSstuff.com's IP utilities (Reverse DNS, Whois, Geolocation, Traceroute).  A mod for either the terribly paranoid or the extremely curious (or perhaps someone in between).  Wink

To download this mod (latest and final version: 1.2), click here

Link IP Mod


Link IP Mod Ver. 1.2 by "Mongo" aka, Brian Longo
URL to documentation: http://www.eyeontoccoa.com/mods/
email: webmaster@eyeontoccoa.com
Release Date: December 12, 2005

Tested on and coded for YaBB 2.x
Contained in the zip file you will find:
>>Link IP (clean/no hidden user install)
>>Link IP for Hidden User Mod
>>Link IP for Hidden User and Last IP Mod (combo mod)
>>Link IP for Last IP Mod
>>Link IP for Search for IP add-on (astropilot's mod)
>>Users Today patch
>>Link IP for Who Is Where add-on (XTC's mod)
>>Link IP for YaMMS add-on (Cartsen's mod)
>>readme.txt
>>link_ip.pl (upload to Admin directory)
>>link_ip.lng (upload to Languages/English directory)

In one way or another, depending on which mod you install, the following files will be modified:

-AdminIndex.pl
-YaBB.pl
-Admin/AdminSubList.pl
-Admin/ErrorLog.pl
-Admin/link_ip.pl
-Admin/ModList.pl
-Admin/users_today.pl (Users Today add-on)
-Admin/ViewMembers.pl
-Languages/English/link_ip.txt
-Source/BoardIndex.pl
-Source/Display.pl
-Source/Memberlist.pl (YaMMS add-on/Last IP mod)
-Source/Profile.pl (Last IP Mod)
-Sources/Search.pl (Search for IP add-on)
-Sources/users_today_2.pl (Users Today add-on)
-Sources/Who.pl (Who Is Where add-on)
-Variables/last_ip.txt

To run the "add-on" mods, you must at least install one of the 4 "main" mods:
- Link IP
- Link IP for Hidden User mod
- Link IP for Last IP mod
- Link IP for Hidden User and Last IP mod

For complete information, please see the readme.txt file or go to http://www.eyeontoccoa.com/mods/link_ip/.
The readme file is simply too long to display on here now.  Wink

I've asked Michael to add this to the mod database and to move this thread to the final mods.

Thanks to all who made suggestions and tested this mod.

May I suggest that you could expand this mod to include the IP address print from Display.pl and Search.pl and Memberlist.pl with the YAMS mod.

Good update.

I like this mod Smiley - Great Idea.

It would be nice if you could give the admin the option on what tool the IP address links too. For instance, I would find it more useful if it linked to the WHOIS tool, instead of the reverse lookup. Some people may also want the geolocation tool also.

Well Done 8)

Thanks for the suggestions.  I actually thought about adding functionality to the messages and YAMS (@astropilot) and letting the admin decide their choice of link (@LooneyPandora).  Other than the limited functionality, I hope it's something that others have wanted (kind of works like phpBB's admin section where an IP is linked to a utility).

While I was working on it last week, the hard drive in my laptop crashed (which had my mods, a lot of others' mods and about 4 different boards on it), so I've been busy rebuilding it the past couple of days and just have rebuilt the Link IP mod and reworking the other mods that I've installed on my "online" board.

So when I get some time I'll look into working on your suggestions.  Astropilot's suggestions won't be too difficult to implement, but it might take a little more thinking on LooneyPandora's suggestion, though certainly not an impossibility.  Keep an eye out for the updates, though.

Great idea Mongo.  And great suggestions by the others.  It'll be handy to have this as a fully featured mod. Smiley

A patch for Carsten's YaMMS mod has been included in the Link IP zip file.  The readme has been updated to include support for the new patch and goes as such:

=========================================
Board with Carsten's YaMMS Mod Installed=
=========================================

1) Run this mod.
2) Upload your modified Memberlist.pl file to your server.

Modifies the following file:
-Source/Memberlist.pl

If you have any problems, comments, or bug reports, send them to: webmaster@eyeontoccoa.com.

Version History:
## 1.0 ##- First Release

I've also implemented the mod to link the IP addresses in Display.pl, so now the IPs are linked in your messages.  Still thinking about how to make the Admin's choice of IP utility functional.

And Astropilot, I was looking into your suggestion about the Search.pl function but couldn't see what you were talking about.  Care to tell me where exactly to look?  Thanks.

Oops.  I forgot that in a stock version of Y2  when you use the search function, ip addresses are not shown in the output.

However, they do when the Seach IP mod is applied.  I'll leave it up to you if you want to make a patch for that mod.

Alright...I'll look into that.  I figured that's what you were referring to, but since you threw it out there I wanted clarification from you about it.  Smiley  Thanks.

I'm glad someone knew what I was talking about, because I didn't at first. Wink

Ok, and update has been made to my Link IP mod.  Includes suggestions made by astropilot and LooneyPandora.  See the first post in this topic for details.

Another suggestion:  You could have it where the mod creates a stored list of IP addresses a username has logged in under.  Would help with security. Smiley

While that might help with security, I'm not going to dive into that part, sorry.  If you have a big board with a lot of members, a list of saved IP addresses would become almost gargantuan.  Besides, the only purpose of this mod is to link an IP, not store it.

I have a mod that only holds the Last IP of a user.  Carsten's YaMMS holds the last 3.  I'm certain a mod could be made to where you could store an infinite number of IP's for every user, but I'm not really interested in going that far.  Perhaps someone else might, or maybe you could create it.

Again, sorry.

Thank you astropilot.  I aim to please.  Smiley

I have updated the 4 "main" mod files as I forgot to add links to the ErrorLog.pl file (those files are Link IP, Link IP with Hidden User patch, Link IP with Hidden User and Last IP patch, and Link IP with Last IP patch). 

I have simply replaced the main files in the zip with the updated files.  If you installed the mod(s) since this afternoon, uninstall them, download the new files, and install the new files.  If you get stuck, let me know and I'll help "unjam" you.

You know, I was just going to request the Link IP for the error log.

Now that you've added it, I'm going to request it for the Forum Log.  Wink
