On many occasions i have come across, people who think they are internet badasses by hacking peoples servers and such, i have come across one idiot who does it continuously.
Here is the question, you run a server and u dont want to put a password, you want many players joining it so u can have a good free for all or what ever, then u get this hacker who will lame and crash ur server if u kick, what do u do, the ravensoft guys have poor support when it comes to this issue.

How is he crashing your server? Are you running a version of Jedi Academy Mod earlier than the latest "fixed" version of 1.6? If you are, you are vulnerable to exploits. Update to the latest version.

You ban people to keep them off your server. If they are on the server when you are, use /rcon status (or amstatus if using JA Mod) to get their IP address (make sure you have the right one) and use /rcon addip aa.bb.cc.dd where aa.bb.cc.dd is their IP address. Then kick them and they won't come right back. If they change their IP address and come back, just repeat the instructions above.
