Note to Sponge Staff: I'm putting this in "Server Discussion" because this isn't a Sponge plugin - it's a BungeeCord plugin that will only benefit SpongeForge server owners. Please feel free to move this to a more appropriate place.
IP Forwarding plugin for BungeeCord - zero-config IP Forwarding for modded SpongeForge servers
This BungeeCord plugin has one simple task - it enables IP Forwarding for Forge 1.8+ servers running SpongeForge without any extra configuration. So, if you run a 1.8+ Forge & BungeeCord network, this Bungee plugin is for you.
You do NOT need this plugin if you are only running SpongeVanilla servers, or non client-modded SpongeForge servers - but it won't harm you if you have it installed.
This plugin is hopefully temporary until this PR on the BungeeCord repo is pulled, and is simply a plugin variant of the same code.
I am aware that there is a previous plugin (SpongePls) that does the same thing, but it requires configuration. This plugin is much simpler and is zero config. However, if you are using SpongePls successfully, there is no need to switch to this plugin. This simply makes use of a newer version of the IP Forwarding system available in Sponge.

How to use
- Install SpongeForge onto your Forge server (if you haven't already)
- Download the plugin using the link above.
- Install into your BungeeCord plugins folder
- Enable IP forwarding in BungeeCord and Sponge configurations
- Start Bungee and your server.
Remember, this is NOT a Sponge plugin. Do not add to your Sponge mods directory, add to your BungeeCord plugins directory.
Note that this will not compile without adding a location for, or a local copy of, the "bungeecord-proxy" library. It doesn't seem to have been uploaded to Sonatype...
