No, sorry, there's no way to do that at present.

Baning by IP is too imprecise a tool---it's very likely that the person
you're having a problem with is connecting via a dynamic IP, so banning
his previous IP would do you little good.

We're considering what to do about this problem for VASSAL 4. What
exactly is the person you're having a problem with doing?
