How to Ban or Unban Someone on Minecraft Server
When banning or unbanning a player on Minecraft Server, you can either do it by entering the username of the player or by IP of the player.
Player Ban/ Unban Using Name:
First, you are going to want to access your SMpicnic control panel and then press on the console tab.
From there it's a simple matter of entering a person's username in the command bar and putting ban or pardon in front of their name to either ban or unban them from the server that they have access to.
Player Ban/ Unban Using IP:
If you wish to ban someone using an IP then you need to once again access your console command bar through the same program of SMpicnic and input their username along with their Gamertag or username. It goes a bit like this.
Unbanning someone’s IP is more less the same, but this time you replace the world ban with pardon.
Viewing Ban list
If you want to see just a player who is banned regardless of their IP, input the following command based solely on their username.
