...I installed your newest version of Traffic Cop 4.41 and after the ip nation database is installed I refreshed the page and this is the error I recieved....

Terribly sorry! The fixed download on Market is now TrafficCop_4.41b. Please download the "b" version and upload to your server. This will eliminate the said bug.  Tongue

Peter,

Everytime I try to disable Traffic Cop I receive this error message:

Code:
Fatal error: Call to undefined method TrafficCop::clear_plugin_settings() in /home1/mysite/public_html/include/plugins/TrafficCop/TrafficCop.php on line 2270

Any idea how to fix it?

Thanks,

wclang

Bill, I suspect that you are not using the latest version of TC, which is 4.41c. Can you check?

Hello Peter,

I was using 4.40 and it was working great with no problems and then all of a sudden I end up with these issues.  I upgraded to the newest version and everything works again, but why would it stop working once a new version has been pushed out, or is it just a coincidence?

Thanks for your help Peter Smiley

Not quite sure about your specific conditions, but bugs tend to sneak in, always. Sorry about that.

The whitelisting function doesn't work. I have tried to whitelist specific countries and IP addresses and people are still getting a 403 message. shouldn't whitelisting the country override any other consideration?

This is most likely because those IP addresses that you have whitelisted are in the Deny Log.

How the Deny Log works:
Any IP address that is in the Deny Log will get denied again.

You can go to the Deny Log page and manually remove those IP addresses.

The ip2nation database, used by Traffic Cop, has been updated on 2011-07-31.

You may download it from: http://ip2nation.com/

The update is very important as it determines accuracy of IP address to country conversion.

Version 6.2.1 of Traffic Cop had been released today.

As compared to the previous release (v6.1.1), this version does not have any changes to the code. However, significant changes have been made to the DENY RULES file and an example .htaccess file had been added for better IP address blocking.

What is .htaccess file? - Read on Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Htaccess

I have revised and updated the list of blocked IP addresses (ranges). This had been reflected in the DENY RULES file. However, much more effective way to block IPs is by the use of the .htaccess file, because it will
  • reduce the load to server
  • protect all the files on the server, not just PHP files.

You are advised to use the .htaccess file for IP blocking. If you do that, you should remove the IP blocking setting from your DENY RULES. This will make your Job Board work faster.

QUESTION: "So why then still use Traffic Cop?" Huh

ANSWER: Traffic Cop can block malicious traffic based on several criteria, not just IP. Those include server name, country, referrer etc. Traffic Cop will help you block malicious visitors, record their IP in the deny log. Having their IP will then give you a chance to enter this IP address (or a whole block) into your .htaccess file.

Traffic Cop can detect proxies and their IP, while .htaccess cannot.

Traffic Cop can do fuzzy IP address matching, .htaccess cannot.

Users that don't use Apache server cannot use the .htaccess file, but still will benefit from the updated DENY RULES.

Database ip2nation was updated on August 20, 2011.

You can download it from:

http://ip2nation.com/ip2nation

Then follow the instructions in README.txt of Traffic Cop on how to update it in your Job Board.

I will include the database in the next release of Traffic Cop.

Dear customer,

6 June is being celebrated as World IPv6 Day. Today many Internet service providers around the world as well as many major websites will begin permanent use of the IPv6 protocol address.

Today Colossal Mind has released TRAFFIC COP version 7.0.0 which is IPv6 ready.

Besides being able to work with IPv6 addresses, the new release features new functions and enhancements (newest ip2nation database, new deny rules, etc.).

If you already own TRAFFIC COP, please download and install the latest version at your earliest convenience. If you don't own it yet, perhaps you'd consider buying it?

https://colossalmind.com/products/traffic-cop.html

If you ever need free help with installation or setup, don't hesitate contacting me!

May you have a happy IPv6 day,
Peter Kahl
