Global Ban (/Retry) Keys

  • welp, in here i wanna know pretty much everything about global ban keys:
    how to specify them? is every line one key?
    if so, then how do i specify multiline keys?
    do the keys have to be constants or are certain wildcards available?
    is it possible to use a matching regex as key?
    what are the keys applied to? just <SOURCE>? or are headers/cookies/address/... searched too?
    so far a short trip to google could only clarify that GBKs are checked before the actual (local) keycheck,
    which totally makes sense in case of false positives.

    Global ban keys are one per line, correct.
    There is no way to specify multiline keys, or wildcards, regex or other fields, it's just meant to be a very simple way to detect if a proxy has a captive portal / restricted access.
    Anyways, I would not mind to expand this with more functionality if you show me some interesting use cases, so feel free to create an issue on github about it.

  • great, that's good to know!
    well, i'm just getting started working with GBKs so i just wanted to know what options are at my disposal.
    but if i find some nice examples where wildcards/regex come in handy i'm sure to open an issue on git 😉
    thanks @Ruri
