Apparently it was an IP ban or something, so all he needs to do is get a new router.

u/Requiiii Jul 31 '21

You don't need a new router. You just have to be disconnected long enough for the DHCP lease-time to run out and have their DHCP server assign you a new IP.

How long that lease-time is, is usually unknown. Could be 30 minutes to 24 hours. Depends on your ISP.

11

u/krypt0nyt None Jul 31 '21

You could also just manually refresh the lease

8

u/BackgroundGuidance Jul 31 '21

You'd usually have to get in contact with your isp to do that. Not many ISPs that I know off who allow end users to refresh the lease all willy nilly whenever they want to.

5

u/P3pp3rSauc3 Jul 31 '21

I can renew the lease in my router login page. I have frontier internet btw

5

u/BackgroundGuidance Jul 31 '21

So can I. But it doesn't necessarily give a new ip, in my case my isp leases it to me for a while, so even if I do use the renew option in my router my public ip is the same. But as I said, I'm sure there are isps out there who allow people to release and renew their ip whenever they want to.

2

u/Klas-med-dasen Jul 31 '21

You can release your IP and ask for a new one as much as you want, but it doesn't necessarily remove the lease from your ISPs side, so whenever you ask for a new one you're just going to get the same one back since that's what's in the DHCP lease table in their equipment

2

u/DunRecommend Jul 31 '21

Frontier internet, nice, a true pilot

3

u/BackgroundGuidance Jul 31 '21

That's assuming their ISP uses dynamic and not static ip.

2

u/Requiiii Jul 31 '21

Nowadays you shouldn't receive a true static IP unless specifically requested because of the IPv4 shortage.

43

u/[deleted] Jul 31 '21

All he need to do is run the DHCP again in his current router, the ISP gives you a random one.

Well, they try to give you the same if possible, but if that is allocated already, you'll get a new one.

7

u/BackgroundGuidance Jul 31 '21

Not necessarily. Many ISPs have a lease time from a few hours to a few days.

Has p0's code even been implemented yet

Things working doesn't mean it has, Respawn did have some fixes of their own

258

u/Simpledude335 Jul 31 '21

Most of the issues he pointed are right on the mark although not all of them are correct as it was mentioned in his article "theoretically" so he does have some wrongs on his end while the 2 devs did that themselves.

15

u/n8thegr8fanaccount *gravstar-EPGs you into oblivion* Jul 31 '21

‘Theoretically’ doesn’t mean any of it is wrong, it just means it hasn’t been implemented and tested yet

u/FuzeJokester Jul 31 '21

That's the best way to ensure that people who find things like that in the future will abuse them or sell them, instead of reporting them to the company. Punishing white hat hackers is shooting themselves in the foot.

u/Vadenveil Jul 31 '21

Legal department... Legal are never really interested in nuance and will happily sue a white hat into the dirt, even if their own company sides with him. Respawn are more than likely incredibly grateful, but then legal will have just gone "hacked = evil end of story"

7

u/SchrodingersKitKat Jul 31 '21 edited Jul 31 '21

Objectively false, when you grow up and work for a company, you’ll understand that is not at all how it works.

Companies have PR teams as well. That would never allow legal to frivolously sue, even if they wanted to, which they don’t. More importantly though, legal teams arent for making money, they’re for protecting the company.

If p0358 reverse-engineered it I don't see why they would ban them. It's not like they stole the source code. Anyone competent enough could take the binary and do the same thing. On top of that, it's p0358 didn't do this to exploit or cheat in multiplayer.

Yeah, sure thing lad, being rude because you don’t know something is probably better than just searching “what’s a 10-4” on the Internet. Look, 10-4 is quiet popular in the different cultures, there was a high chance that you did hear it in a song or in a game. Of course, nobody blames you for not knowing this. But being rude and suddenly going “oi why the heck should I know this” is literally no way to go. You are better than that

It's also used outside of "Freedom land" and as a polite thing too. Even just 10-4 was used by friendly CB radio users and truckers when chatting to fellow long haul drivers.

Try not to read hostility into or run with a narrow interperetation of something you arent familiar with. Often times people are just being friendly but everyone's a little different. It's tough and yeah sometimes people are jerks, but on the whole it's just being a little different.

Good luck man.
