Edit1 can u tell me where ban_list.txt is located? due i do not find anything about on my pc logs folder / file...

No sry still banned
edit 1: may i guess this got something to do with steam since i use steam version of bannerlord but non steam version of warband ? but even that worked since a month or longer

why do i run a server and have no insight nor control about ban and unban? This realy not fun..
edit2) "So if you have access to your serverbox files you can edit the banlog.txt file to remove the banned clients!" from tompaw0w out of an similar NW topic>
>And please dont get me wrong in this but i wanna know/ wanna get control of this, no matter if that is my current problem or not.

i have tried to do the same thing on a another pc. I just put my warband and the dedicated server files on it. Tried to join my own "Local area network" in there... Same result. Im banned of that server. Shouldnt it be a different one??
im trying to test a mod. .... .... .... ... ... ... ....... .....

Edit2) my serial key is all clean btw...^^

The same thing happens to me, since yesterday I have been trying to do it, but I appear banned from my Warband server. with native and with mods ...
I also downloaded the files again but nothing happens ...
Heya, This is also happening with me.
Any computer that tries to join a Dedicated server which sits on the same network says "You are banned from this server".

Still no fixes?


I haven't figured out a solution to this issue, but I do have a workaround.

For whatever reason, it's impossible to join a game being hosted on the same network, dedicated server or not. This is true even for a dedicated server being hosted on the same computer.

You can still host a dedicated server, port forward, and have it be accessible to friends on different networks at different locations. In order to be able to play with those friends--to connect to your own server--the only workaround I've found is to host a dedicated server on a separate computer and port forward like normal; then on the computer running my game, I use a VPN to trick the game into thinking I'm on another network.

I use Nord ( to do this, it's very simple--just install the windows application, run it, and click on any country. You should be able to connect to your server as normal. Unfortunately Nord isn't free; this might work with other VPN's but I haven't tested any so I'm not sure. For LAN parties, everyone can use the same Nord account to connect to a dedicated server being run on a separate computer.

Hope this helps!


I have the same issue.
Thanks for the work around, problem is that I don't have another free computer to run the server on.
Could we get some kind feedback on what the progress is on the issue.
There is an upcoming warband tournament coming, I want to have my training server up so we can prepare for it <3

Forwarded to our server team. We are investigating this issue. Sadly, we can't give any ETA at the moment. Sorry for the inconvenience.

The team working on Bannerlord and we have some stuff that has much more priority. This fix/investigation might even start after the tournament. Thanks why I can't give a timeframe.
I too cannot access my lan server. On both computers, i host on one and try joining and it says i am banned. tried other way round still banned. It used to work but for some reason i cannot join my local network game.


Disabling IPv6 for me does not work. This really needs to be fixed. The reason why I bought this game was to have fun in multiplayer with my own server over lan. Very disappointed.
