Edit IP Blacklist

This option uses the inbuilt Mystic BBS text editor to open and edit blacklist.txt This file allows you to set IP addresses that you wish to block from connecting to your Mystic BBS servers.

In Servers > Configure Servers > [server type] you will find a setting in each server called 'Send Blocked'

If this is set to NO then a blocked connection will just be disconnected.

If it is set to YES then if blocked.txt exists in the mystic\data directory the contents of that file will be displayed and then the connection dropped. Else if blocked.txt does not exist then Mystic will just display BLOCKED and then hang up.

Below is a screenshot of the Mystic editor in action.
