The [[banfile]] is a file in which a list of banned player accounts and IP addresses are saved. Server administrators may issue bans to players who use foul language, [[Team Kill]], use a cheat client or who behave inappropriately or against the spirit of the game.

It is also possible to specify a Master Ban URL location like so:
 
-masterBanURL http://www.bzflag.org/master-bans.txt
 
 
Note that the URL specified includes the master bans the BZFlag developers have noted as cases where a [[Master Ban]] was necessary.
 
 
==Managing the Banfile==
 
If the ban files are ever updated outside of the game, or if you have multiple servers using the same ban files, they will need to be updated manually every time they change.
 
 
One method of doing this with administrative privileges is to run the '''/reload''' command in-game like so:
 
/reload bans
 
 
The second method is to load the [[Server Control]] plugin which would automatically perform a ban reload upon ban updates. You can view the plugin's wiki page for more details on setting it up.
