  1. Add to that: If someone gets you to view a URL in your browser (in-viewer or external browser) and they have access to that server, they can discover your IP by matching accesses to happeningss inside SL. Generically, this is the same as them using land/avatar music/media. For the very cautious, it would be best to live in a SL that is *entirely* served by SL servers.
  2. "If, on the other hand, it is a 3rd party sim owner having the same ability to track and obtain personal information about me, such as my real world location from my IP Address, then that is something I do have an issue with." Other than LL servers acting as automatic proxy for all third-party-served music and video, there is no way to stop someone discovering the IP that is connecting you to SL. As long as they have access to the server logs/scripting, they can see IPs. That would impose a considerable load on LL servers - and a bottleneck on everyone. They could reduce the load by not pr
  3. The answer to Are IP Address Trackers again being used in SL? seems to be "Not in this case at any rate". You were both getting SL system messages related to access - and before the TP process proper could get underway - - just as I reported for my attempt to TP into some random place where I did not have access - because the place was not on public access. It seems that LL impose an IP ban ( of whatever duration ) for a ( certain type of ) location. This seems to be imposed when a banned avatar tries to TP in - and most probably also when that avatar is banned in the first place. It see
  4. At last! (ish) "She received a message" is NOT 'full exact'. You did not specify that it was a pop-up message. Nor did you quote the text seen. That was very important detail. Only now do you specify pop-up and I strongly suspect that still you don't quote the full precise text. Compare what you supplied v what I supplied earlier (twice) as a template. /me turns the desk lamp again "DONUTZ UND BLINIZ SCVEINHUNTZ!" Here, for the third time is the standard of reporting that you should use to help people to help you. Try TP to the sim ....... OLN Island. I don't have access there.
  5. All the devices in your home that work through your DSL/Cable/whatever will share the one same public IP address. That address is actually assigned to your modem, not directly to your device(s) The router or modem/router deals with the internal (private) IPs used by each device. Traffic to and from your devices is tagged so that the router knows which internal address is involved. "Locators" can only use a best guess at physical location based on information publicly supplied by the ISP. In some cases that only indicates a city or a regional centre. In some cases the information available
  6. We can't share an IP (simultaneously) if we are on separate lines. The IP is the nearest thing that the Net has to a physical address. The way we would share an IP simultaneously is by being on the same network behind a modem (cable or DSL, etc). we have separate internal IPs on the private internal network, but we share the public IP that is linked to the line/cable_modem that connects out internal network to the Internet via the ISP network. That could happen in a business/ hotel/cafe/library/dorm/whatever that offers connections to a number of people but has a single connection to the Ne
  7. In general, Europeans (at least) who were mostly on DSL telephone lines could change their IP by restarting the modem or with a menu option on the modem-management web interface. I understand that for people on cable - more common in the US - changing IP can be a BIG DEAL. The MAC address of the first device connected to the modem (like a router) has to be changed/spoofed. Then there has to be a cold boot of the modem - which might involve having to remove a backup battery. I think the makers of RedZone were working on an assumption that everyone was on 'cable' restrictions. LL would not be
  8. /me turns desk lamp to shine straight into Marcus' eyes "It vould help if you vould anzver der qvestunz!!" What *exactly and in detail* does your daughter see? For template see my example given in two separate posts above. What *exacly and in detail* do you see? What could be happening is an attempt by LL to make it more difficult for someone to come back in as an alt. It's not foolproof, but it might help against casual griefing (defined as - troublemaking/drama as a knee-jerk response to getting ejected). Not everyone is aware of how to change their IP. The logic would be: A banned a
  9. "when she is unable to tp there gets a message saying she does not have access to this region" Can you please quote the exact text of the message that she gets? Does this appear as a chat message or as a pop-up window message? Without that level of information it is very difficult to help you For example, here was my account ( as above) of what happened when I tried to TP to a sim to which I am not allowed access: I saw... - my window goes black - I see the TP progress bar (with zero progress), and then immediately .... - I get a pop-up message window: ----------------------------
  10. As I understand you: You change IP Your daugter gets in no problem. She gets the usual 'connecting to region'... then 'arriving'.. You try to TP in and get booted Your daughter then can't get in. I'm still not sure what exactly your daughter is experiencing on a failure to get in. Can you quote in full the messages that she and you get - rather than decribe the nature of them? For example, by trial and error, I found a sim that does not allow me in. When I try to TP, - my window goes black - I see the TP progress bar (with zero progress), and then immediately .... - I get a pop-u
  11. "and the mesages should be telling them the name of the object that's teleported/ejected them." Certainly should if the object was trying to emulate the drama queen who booted me from the biker sim It's not impoosible that such a thing would do the booting using the usual llcall (with associated system message) and then proceed to deliver a lecture. The source of the lecture would be clickable in chat.
  12. "and the mesages should be telling them the name of the object that's teleported/ejected them." That is what I had assumed first, but my test with a scripted object doing the eject resulted in a standard system message "Second Life: You have been....." A message was given *only* on the eject. When my banned alt tried to TP into the parcel, she was simply landed outside the parcel boundary. There was absolutely no message. This was simply a mainland parcel though, not a private sim. My vague memory of being banned from the biker sim is that when I tried to TP, I got a near-immediate noti
  13. We don't know if your stubborn fellow was using the same IP. He had about 3 minutes between visits. I would have no problem changing my IP at a much higher rate than that. Back in the day, I remember discussions about 'good' griefers changing IP as a matter of course so as to evade IP bans by LL. It is not impossible that the sim owner is using a RedZone-like system. AFAIK, such a system can only guess/determine an IP via Media. RedZone built a list of avatars seen to share an IP. As I remember, it banned by name all avatars in the list - not just the avatar that had originally been
  14. Yes. I've never had control of a private sim, so I'm not familiar with the options. The test(s) should cover all available options available as standard LL. The purpose would be to see if an IP ban, as reported by the OP, exists with any standard LL option.
  15. I am trying to understand what *exactly* happens and what messages are seen by you and by another on the same IP. I don't control a whole sim, so I could only run through on a mainland parcel. A. Determine messages: 1. I'm in my parcel. So is an alt that I can run simultaneously (and same IP) 2. I look at her straight in the eye and do "Eject and ban". 3. She gets dumped outside the parcel - but in still in the same sim. She gets a chat message "Second Life: Sling Trebuchet ejected and banned you from this land." Her name appears in the parcel ban list. 4. She tries to walk into the
