How do I convert a IP Address to a IP Number?

IP address (IPV4) is divided into 4 sub-blocks. Each sub-block has a different weight number each powered by 256. IP number is being used in the database because it is efficient to search between a range of number in database.

Start IP number and End IP Number are calculated based on following formula:

IP Number = 16777216*w + 65536*x + 256*y + z     (1)

where
IP Address = w.x.y.z

For example, if IP address is "169.6.7.20", then its IP Number "2835744532" is based on the formula (1).

IP Address = 169.6.7.20

So, w = 169, x = 6, y = 7 and z = 20

IP Number = 16777216*169 + 65536*6 + 256*7 + 20
= 2835349504 + 393216 + 1792 + 20
= 2835744532

PHP Function To Convert IP Address to IP Number
-----------------------------------------------
{
if (\$IPaddr == "") {
return 0;
} else {
\$ips = split ("\.", "\$IPaddr");
return (\$ips + \$ips * 256 + \$ips * 65536 + \$ips
*16777216); }
}

ASP Function To Convert IP Address to IP Number
-----------------------------------------------
Function Dot2LongIP (ByVal DottedIP)
Dim i, pos
Dim PrevPos, num
If DottedIP = "" Then
Dot2LongIP = 0
Else
For i = 1 To 4
pos = InStr(PrevPos + 1, DottedIP, ".", 1)
If i = 4 Then
pos = Len(DottedIP) + 1
End If
num = Int(Mid(DottedIP, PrevPos + 1, pos - PrevPos - 1))
PrevPos = pos
Dot2LongIP = ((num Mod 256) * (256 ^ (4 - i))) + Dot2LongIP
Next
End If
End Function
