AFAIK The Guardian updates the .htaccess file but the .htaccess file does not update The Guardian, at least in my case  - The same scenario with IPManager in CPanel (where I ban IPs) the IPManager updates the .htaccess file but not the other way round. As the .htaccess gets updated with new IPs at the bottom of the file, once those added IPs are edited to follow a sequential order, the IPManager list disappear and the process start all agaiin with new IPs banned. I dont use The Guardian for IP banning as it slows down forum  response when the server has to check both, the .htaccesss file and The Guardian. Server Geek suggested not to use both The Guardian and IPManager. My0.2C

ok's i will explain for you  Wink
ok when you goto Admin > The Guardian
what you see load in Global and Server Settings is The Guardian Reading in the ip's from the .htaccess from with in theas tags <Files YaBB*></Files>
so if you download a .htaccess edit and add a new ip to it and reupload it when you go Admin > The Guardian
in Global and Server Settings you will now see that ip loads in there.  Wink

Thanks xnoddyx for the clarification, however in the Guardian Global and Server settings there are no IPs visible at the forum level, although there are over 1700 banned IPs on the .htaccess file which I update once a month with the new additional banned IPs in sequential order.

Am I missing something??? Embarrassed

Based on the picture, your Guardian isn't speaking to the .htaccess file at all as that hasn't been checked.
