I'd be Ok with kicking them off after 12 hours tbh. Or after each file they have downloaded completes.

Actually Dunny, that's a better solution, kick off after download or after 12hrs, whichever is the soonest. Oh, and unable to log back in for say 15 minutes.

Of course they'll have to be limited to 1 download at a time (if that isn't already implemented) or they'll get kicked off midway through the second,or more, downloads.

Yeah, I was being generous with 72 hours really... but given that the download speed is only maximum 50kb/sec, they aren't doing real EAB FTP members any harm.

...but they are for others in the same situation i.e. if you are an anonymous user then you don't have much of a chance of ever getting connected with some people staying attached for days / months

I'm sure Turran will come up with a fair / viable solution but do please still give your opinions

____________________________________________________________________________________________________


Saying all of the above; I also think EAB FTP users shouldn't be connected for more than 5 days consistently; that's crazy and probably an attempt to leech everything in a short space of time for some unknown reason...

Yes, I'm looking at these people who are month upon month consistently smashing the EAB File Server and at the top of every "download" list available (day / week / month / all time)

Code:
.--------------------------------------------------------------------=-.
| ## User         Location/Tagline         Files  Megabytes   Avg k/s   |
|-=-------------------------------------------------------------------=-|
[01] pgovotsos    pgovotsos              963,965 3,869,62MB    750K/s
[03] icycool      icycool                593,012 1,137,45MB    210K/s
[04] drwhy        drwhy                  560,612  996,585MB   1096K/s
Bet none of you have even bothered to donate towards Turran's running costs / upgrades

Bleeding leechers, they're everywhere

Why on earth would someone want to leech everything from the ftp, it's not like they'll be able to use or view everything they get in their lifetime, jesus, it'll take about 3 lifetimes to sift through everything

I usually do that manually and give them a nice little temporary ban in the firewall to prevent them from logging in again for a day or two.


But no automated system for it in place.

Its 154 and 79 hours, not days =) I've been lazy kicking.

pgovotsos is OK. Hes donated quite a bit because hes local backup crashed that he'd already downloaded over the months. We came to an arrangement so he could download it again as it was easier that way (Why he wants a full backup is another question, but I did not really care, heh).

While kicking after <minutes> is not a problem, preventing them from logging in can only be done in the firewall and not as easy to script. Just kicking does not do much because they have a login-retry limit of 0 seconds so they usually get the free slot themselves when trying again. I tried it but all it did was kick them and they logged back in, now with a reset "time online" timer.
Edit: Actually, might be able to do this, giving them a temporary ban to allow someone else to pick up the empty slot. I'll look into it.

I'd dearly like to be a real EAB user. My post count is high enough, and my last post date recent enough.

But when I go through the account creation dialogue, it leads me to a blank page with the blue EAB layout and header. No luck logging in with browser or Filezilla (incorrect credentials).

Repeated attempt tells me I've already submitted a userid from my IP, please wait for 24h.

That's fine by me, but the same thing will probably happen again. Any idea why?

I'll have a look tonight on the webserver for what might have caused that.

I'm on the list but I'm quite active!
I was using the ftp://grandis.nu/ 2 days ago searching for Thalion's backup of Back2theRoots...

Oh, unless this is an anonymous usage of the ftp and I have to connect with an ftp client, right???

If that's the case please re-establish my connection and I will log-in properly next time!

Well, yes, you are right. I'm trying to log in now and it is says that I have been deleted.
Is it because I haven't connected for a long time?
Would you please re-establish my connection?
Should I submit my info again?

...no idea why any of the 5 people listed became disabled. There's no time limit due to inactivity / last connection.

Maybe Turran can advise?

Anyway, I've re-enabled your account scifi

You never logged in after creating your account so whatever you did, you used the anonymous account =)
You must logon at least once in 7 days after creation of the account to "activate" it. This is a one time thing and is only needed once to permanently activate it.

DamienD activated you again, so you must now logon before midnight or it will disable itself again.

I could find no reason why it did not work the first time you tried, although I can see the result from trying to add your account is just empty.


Can you give it another go to add your account?

I think I did back then but, hey... I'm 45 years old... I do forget some times!

Thanks a lot, both of you!!!!

Well, that's what happened! I didn't use the right syntax to log on.
So, I was logging on all this time as an anonymous user and I didn't have a clue about it. You should have kicked me out a long time ago!

You see, at first glance there is no visible difference when you log on through your web browser...

Not much details given malko; my crystal ball isn't as strong as Toni's

Using an FTP client, any error message, etc?

If you PM me your desired password I'll reset and you can try again
