Quick question concerning the UN

02-11-2003, 02:32
I had a question...

My brother Alec made a nationstate today, The Alecs. He has his own computer, so it should be ok, if he wants to join the UN, right? Because we have different IP addresses.... I think. But I just wanted to make sure that, if he wanted to join the UN, that niehter of our nations would be expelled, or deleted. I'm safe, right?

It depends, if you have dialup, you should be fine, but if you are on a LAN, your ip probably runs through a NAT which means it would show up on a multi scan

I'm not a mod though....

I see your waiting for a response by browsing the forum and it looks okay to me but i have very little technical advice. :)

Well, here's our situation. My brother usually usues my dad's laptop, and I have my own laptop. My dad usually uses LAN connection, but sometimes the wireless. I always use the wireless connection.

Is that good or bad? lol

If you are connected to the internet through the same LAN(wireless LAN too) than you most likely have the same ip address to the multi scanner, basically, a router has one ip address, so if you are connecting through the same router, then unfortunatly the mods can't prove if it's not the same person, however I'm not a moderator so you should probabaly wait till one of them responds and see what they have to say....

If the computers are separately connected to the internet by form of DSL or dial-up connection you are probably safe. If they are connected to the same DSL or phone line you might be in trouble. If it is a wireless network then you are definitely safe. Thats what I think.

From the sound of it there is a decent likelyhood that you will trigger as multies. It depends on several factors I cannot determine, however you are in a high risk group.

Unless you have a pool of public IP addresses, and as such are NATting that way, chances are that you will show up as multis. However, I suggest you go here:

And take note of the number shown (ignore the weird polish text). If it's the same for both of your computers, then you'll show up as multis to the NS system

If you use different browsers, the likelihood of triggering a ban is lower.
