Is there any possible way to ban someone from the Battlefront server I host?

Geez, give the people some time. At least a day before declaring a forum "worthless."

The answer: no, currently you cannot ban from a server. Look for banning features in future patch(es).

You also might get more help in the server administration forum.

As far as I know, you can't. You just have to wait for a patch.

You should not have to wait a whole day for a reply on a Tech Help forum,as many employees and as rich as LA is they should atleast have 24/7 Tech Support on there forums.

With the 1.1 server patch there is a boot option:

This is from the server help file:


IN GAME SERVER WINDOW:

Clicking on the in game server window opens up a pop-up window that allows you to BOOT and BAN Players from the game.

Boot: Click on a player name to highlight it and press the BOOT button. This will remove that player from the game in progress. However, that player will be allowed to rejoin the game and future games you host using the PC Dedicated Server GUI.

Ban: Click on a player name to highlight it and press the BAN button. This will remove that player from the game in progress. That player will not be allowed to rejoin the game as well as future games you host using the PC Dedicated Server GUI. That players IP address is stored in Banned IPs.

Banned IPs: Displays a list of all IP addresses you have banned.

You can type an IP address in the text box and press the BAN button to prevent players from that IP address to join games you host.

You can type an IP address with a wildcard * in the text box to prevent players from an entire range of IP addresses from joining games you host. For example: 123.123.123.* blocks all IP addresses from 123.123.123.0 to 123.123.123.255.

You can type an IP address with a : plus a number to define the IP address with the port to be banned as well. For example: 123.123.123.123:80.

You can revoke a banned IP address at any time by simply clicking the IP address and pressing

So HTF do you pull up the In Game Server Window? I am renting a dedicated server for our clan and need the admin rights.

there is no in game server window. closest thing to it is a remote admin 'mod' (http://lucasforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=137740)

I like those features (kick and ban), I hope they come out for the PS2 - PC Dedicated Server soon.
