    A forum member is claiming that his  "IP address has been blocked from accessing the forum site, totally" even to look at it on the internet. Is this technically possible?

    It is possible but was being applied unwittingly. No IP addresses are now blocked from viewing the site.

    Hi AdminWould you be able to explain how it is possible to block IP access altogether, inadvertently?After speaking to a couple of tech savvy friends, a specific procedure needs to be carried out to totally block access.Thanks

    In Drupal 6 CMS you can 'block' or 'ban' a user. Banning not only prevents new log-ins etc from a certain IP but also prevents pages from being viewed. The last bit I was not aware of until a few days ago. Now we all know..
