Policy On Connecting With A VPN?


Recommended Posts

I'll keep this short, I am often on public WiFi APs, many of which restrict access to things like Steam and online gaming. I'm largely mobile and don't play at home often. So I use a VPN to circumvent these restrictions. And yet, some of the communities I frequent don't allow VPNs. I also do this to keep my inbound/outbound activities private, being a privacy a oriented guy. I've never received a ban for this before elsewhere, but I still like to check on this beforehand, to avoid future trouble. So, I'm wondering if DayZRP has an official stance in regards to whether connecting via VPN is allowed. I just want to get this answered so I don't inadvertently get myself banned. A response from staff is preferred.

Thanks in advance!

This isn't official coming from me but...

I think you're out of luck bad, people have been banned before for using VPN's as it's easy to make a multitude of accounts just in case your account gets banned. Don't take my word 100% though I would wait for staff. Good luck man.

I have no intention of creating multiple accounts, I only use VPNs to get around network restrictions on various WiFi APs that I connect to. I may or may not be in violation of the spirit of my usage agreement with said providers, but that is solely between me and them. I always go by the rules in every game I play. So far I've gamed online via VPNs for years and I have yet to receive a warning/ban. I didn't see anything mentioning VPNs in the rules here, so I figured I would ask first. As long as I play by the rules ingame then I don't think it poses an issue. I seriously doubt that admins/mods pay attention to what IP a player is connecting from, said player would probably have to already be doing something suspicious for a flag to be raised. In any case, I have extensive Internet security/networking experience, making yourself totally anonymous and untraceable (or extremely difficult to track) really isn't all that hard.

Sadly we do not allow VPN's on our servers as it hides your true IP, I don't think this decision is going to change so unfortunately you are out of luck my friend:( Going to solve this as this is the only answer you will ever recieve for this question...

@ Jack Bandit: Would it be possible to get a preapproved exception, if I can get my VPN provider to assign me a static IP, which DayZRP could use to identify me? My provider has this option. I can understand why you guys don't want the true IP to be masked, this is the best I can offer as a counter. Who would I contact to discuss this further, if possible?

Your best option might be to Private Message Rolle regarding your question.
