I'm having this problem where multiple users who are on a LAN will visit the site and sometimes be already logged in as another user on the same network, or they will log themselves out and instead of logging them out completely it will log their own username out but they will be logged in as a different user on the same network. I think this has something to do with session validation through IP addresses, and since they all share the same external IP the site thinks they are coming from the same machine. I have Multiple Host Login disabled, so that's not the issue.

I don't understand enough about how FUDforum validates session IDs to fix this on my own, so I was hoping that someone on here could explain to me how FUDforum validates session IDs and help me figure out how to stop user sessions from being shared while behind the same router. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.*

*This is probably better suited to the Bug Report forum, but I don't know enough to determine whether this is technically a bug or just an issue of how FUDforum is designed.
