IP Ban

2014-06-17 22:36:21

Hello, I'm currently working on a ban system for my game. It works this way: There's a list of banned players, when the player logins it checks if that username is banned or not, if is not banned it will connect to photon, else it will not. The problem is I can't seem to find anything that can get the player's IP with Photon. So, each user has a IP, if the username is banned, it's IP will be banned, this to prevent players from making different accounts. Is this even possible? or it's only possible through PHP?
