I have no static IP, but still want to exclude/ignore all traffic from my network.
For this, setting cookies is not very practical, as they can be deleted, and there can be quite a number of devices and browsers even in a small network.
So, my idea would be a script, that gets my networks IP by looking up my dynDNS account,
and then excludes requests based on that.
The lookup would need to be cron-sheduled with caching the ip, as discussed in an old Post of mine, when i first installed Google Analytics.
I forgot about that idea, but now as i installed piwik, i got reminded.
I think this could be useful for many ppl, and i guess quite easy to implement.
what if one could just add dynDNS names to the list of excluded ip’s?
after some more searching, i found that this has been discussed before, but with little impact:
sorry for me not finding this before posting.
I hope to get some more answers pro-con, and maybe thoughts towards an implementation?
I’d like to put emphasis again on the fact, that cookies are not a reasonable solution, if you have to exclude all traffic from a whole network, like an office.
