Post UTAN Goes Live!

What is UTAN?!

Basically its a free public system to store your UT2004 GUID and IP server bans in such a way that they can be rolled out to all servers under your control automatically.

Part of the UTAN system allows the trusted admin's (Head Admin's at various GISP's) to add bans into our system so that they will be distributed to all servers running our server actor. We understand how controversial this could be and have setup the system so that if you don't want these global bans, so to speak, you don't have to receive them!

The system allows you to store you own bans for use of either your server or your GISP only, which are protected by a password. So storing all your bans in our system is possible making it very quick and efficient at sending the bans out to your servers.

If you have any questions about UTAN please post on our forums. If your ready to get your server UTAN protected please register on our web-site.

UTAN maintains is own banlist on your server, so once you have converted the banned id's to UTAN bans through the web-site, then yes you can delete them.

Who you ban on your server is up to you

Hi,

I will install utan on my server today... I thinked about a way to avertise about teams killers. Now there is the way !

The only prob is that i have 2 global bans by Id on my server, one is a teamkiller (all is team killer) and a other is a guy banned for playing with at too high degree. How to not communicate the second ban and stay it local ?
no reply needed i will find this myself..

Phoenix.

Hi again,

I have a question, i am the admin and owner of a community server. My server is not for me a clan server and not really a GameServiceProvider but i provide freely a game service... The server is hosted by Gameservers.nl.

So when i read the code of conduct of the utan website it seems that's admins that are not professional admins have no the right to communicate ppl who use aimbots, cheats, team kill, etc. ...

That's annoying..

But UTAN is a great thing. It is now up and running on my server.

Thanks for you help,
Phoenix.

Default Errr...

If someone wanted, they could just reset their roughter, thus changing their ip address, and use a (btw not saying this to suggest but to try and block cheaters like this) keygen to change their cd-key, thus changing their player ID and then they would just change their name and the admin would not know that the player had re-entered the game. I read something about IP range banning, would that prevent this? But wouldnt that also ban innocent players

Well, if I were you, I would not give a flying **** about what the code of conduct says! If there are cheaters on your server, you have every right to kick, ban, llama, slap or whatever your heart desires to do to them!

The only thing it says is that normal users, ie. anyone who registers to use UTAN can't add UTAN global bans, which are bans which get sent out to all servers running UTAN.

Bans are occasionally updated to globals by the UTAN Admins, but it doesnt happen often.

Go read what UTAN is before making stupid comments like this.
