Detect Proxy to filter out and redirect

Detect Proxy to filter out and redirect

Is it possible to use MetaMod pro for Joomla 3 to detect traffic from Proxy servers and redirect them to another url? Just wanna have quality control on my site and hate spammers.

Please advise.

Re: Detect Proxy to filter out and redirect

Hi,

the issue is the detection. A good way to go is MaxMind's web API for proxy detection, found on http://dev.maxmind.com/proxy-detection/  There are PHP examples on that page for how to use it.

There's also partial detection found in the commercial (not free) GeoIP Country databases, https://www.maxmind.com/en/country. That can detect anonymous proxies but not open proxies. The $geoip->country code contains "A1" for an anonymous proxy.

Hope that helps,
Stephen
