Block IP tracking

I’m running a server, but sadly enough there are people using scripts to get other people’s IP addresses. It’s an RP server and we ban people who break the rules, however there are people who can’t accept this, and attack the admin that banned them. I could buy a VPN for all my admins, but is there anything else I can do to block IP tracking scripts?

I believe Garry is making it harder to get IP’s in GMod13, but for now, I don’t think there’s a proper way.

What exactly can they do with an IP Address? It was my understanding that there is very little, if anything that can be done to ‘attack’ someone with one.

There are multiple programs where you only have to fill in the IP, the port and the attack method such as an UDP attack. Run such programs on a dedicated machine, and you have sadly enough an effective way of getting someone’s home internet down.
