Prevent unregistered users from joining

    Is there any way to prevent the unregistered users from joining the server? If
    you try to run a private server it can get really annoying if random people
    pop up, taking up open server slots. What would be a good way to fight that
    apart from setting a server password and keeping the server IP private in the
    first place?

    You said it: "setting a server password and keeping the server IP private".

    this implies you're using some sort of external auth system (or else how woud
    users be able to register in the first place?) - it shouldn't be difficult to
    make such a system kick unregistered users.
