Default I can't get on Tau Forums at college.

When i try to get on Tau Forums at my college campus. It says i'm banned and can't post or message on the forums. But here at my house i can get on fine. I think one of the Admins banned the University of Houston IP address. I believe the reason was because of one of my friends posting something while at school. He supposedly got banned for it. Would that ban the IP address that he is using also? ???

If so please remove that ban off of my college's IP address.

Yes, the IP itself is banned, and it will remain banned as what your friend did was to create a second account solely to flame someone. Your friend's other account(s) are banned from the forums also. IP banning was in this case necessary in addition to banning the accounts, and therefore we cannot lift this ban.

I don't know it's kinda weird because i am on the server now but i'm guessing since it's a large campus that it must have multiple IP addresses. Hmmm we'll its another mystery. Thanks for the answer.

Your campus should have dynamic IP for many machines, or static IP for each terminal in a computer lab. In this case we only banned one particular IP out of the entire range, so whichever computer you logged in from may open up again when its address is reset. And a different computer may work. The IP ban was implemented because the member in question had a history of creating multiple accounts.

Most likely, your college is running a NAT, meaning that a number of computers and internal IP addresses map to one external IP addy. Its pretty common at colleges and businesses. A simple tracert should show you whats going on...and generally, your IP addy will be an internal address as well(say, one with 10 in the first octet).

There is no good solution for the need to ban the offending individual and still allow access from that location, unfortunately. Id reccomend checking around and seeing if different labs are on different NATs or not(most likely not, but it doesn't hurt to check).
