    We have mod_bwprotect enabled and think its working great so far. Just 1 question

    When user access site @ http://serverdomain.com/~user and/or http://serverip/~user does it count towards the user or not at all?

    i just dont want the user to be able to get away w/ grabbing free bandwidth.

    Thanks!

    so really their is no way to prevent a customer from stealing bandwidth without disabling ~user support?

    Yep, at the moment there's no way to stop people doing that except from disabling the feature.
