So, we have an issue with out clan/server.  We had a run-in with one of our members a couple years back and it ended up with him being removed from the clan.  This player then started DDoS'ing our players relentlessly.  Well, one of the players that he DDos'ed, for some reason thinks it was members and clan leaders of our clan.  So, now he is constantly in, not only our server, but just about every other server, including S4A, SOA, T2K, etc., he even spams GameTracker, imitating our clan members and saying we are a team of DDoS and pretty much trying to run our reputation into the ground over something that another person, who isn't part of our clan did to him.

The problem is, he uses VPNs, so he has tons of ip addresses, so if we ban him, he's back within 30 seconds with a different ip doing the same thing.  There is no talking any sense into this individual, so at this point we are at a loss.

Does anyone have any suggestions or any answer to our problem on how to make this stop?  I have no idea what to do at this point, seeing as how he uses a VPN, and I don't think there is anyway to block people from connecting via VPN, correct me if I'm wrong!

We just want to play and have fun and keep the SOF2 community alive, but it is hard to do when this person is running our clan into the ground and spamming multiple other clans servers as well.  We really don't want to have to resort to password protecting the server as we want as much traffic as we can get.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

You are one of the [SC] Leaders or Members, i guess. As i think i know who you are talking about.
This guy; http://www.gametracker.com/server_info/3d-sof2.com:20100/blog/

As he had been in your clan do you have his real IP?
If so you can trace it and report him. ( Probably wont do much as they'll just say that there isnt proof because the person uses a VPN ).
I know Gold servers ( idk if all ) but they can CD KEY ban someone. It wont do much if he thinks logical and just changes his cdkey but stil worth trying.
Maybe contact your host about it. They might know more about it than us.

Dunno much to do else...

Maybe mute him everytime he comes into the server, but its not the best solution.

When searching through google i found this website where you can trace the ISP of the ip adres.
http://whois.domaintools.com/

It might not do much as its a VPN but maybe it'll help you somehow.
Also i found this website:
http://lol.gamepedia.com/DDoS_Prevention_Guide?cookieSetup=true#Who_is_targeting_me_and_what_can_I_do_about_it.3F
 
Gives you information about ddos, and some solutions.
Not sure if it works or if its usefull tho.

I am an Admin there and yes that is exactly who I am talking about.  Just can't talk any sense into him!

I don't have his true ip personally, but I'm sure the RCONs do, although I don't think it will do any good as we have constantly reported the guy that was ddos'ing us in the first place and nothing came of it.  Multiple members reported him to just about everywhere including his isp and nothing happened.

When we mute, he gets a new ip and is back within 30 seconds or so.

And, I will have a look at the last link you provided.

Thanks Punisher,

In the v1.00 since there is no GUID or a subnet ban is useless to ban Dynamics players. If he's using a VPN much less. So the only way in my opinion is torture him, we have had such experience in YOB when we were the best server much played eva online.

About the DDoS

USER side -> rent a VPN i personally use this: Pure VPN
SERVER side -> rent it at www.proclanservers.com adding a DDoS protected IP.

hope this help you.
