  • Registration IP Addresses?

    I have 6 users, and all have the same registration IP address. Does this mean they're all the same person, hiding behind aliases?

    Can somebody explain all about IP addresses - I'm trying to prune users who have signed up using more than one username. Is looking for the Registration IP Addresses the only way to do this?

    And is it possible to perform a 'find users with the same IP address' search?

    I hope somebody can help.

    It's possible that those 6 users are the same person, but it could also be that they're using a proxy (intentionally or because their ISP demands it), so that would show the same IP as well.
    You can search by IP address, but there's no function to show all the ip addresses that have multiple users associated with them.

      So there's really no way to find users who have registered using more than one username?

        If you have an assumption about one user you can check, but there's no general way, no.
