how to check if ip is in ip range
I can't figure this. Can this be done alone with mysql, or there are somethings I need to do with php script.Let say I have many ip range stored in the database one of them is, 126.96.36.199 - 188.8.131.52. The table structure is like this
Let say someone accessed a website and his ip is 184.108.40.206. Now with this ip, it should get name1 from customer name column as it's is in the range of 220.127.116.11 - 18.104.22.168.
ip customer name
22.214.171.124 - 126.96.36.199 name1
188.8.131.52 - 184.108.40.206 name2
I would store the upper and lower bounds as two integer fields, using MySQL's conversion functions (or PHP's ip2long()) to convert them. Then you can similarly convert any IP address of interest to an integer, and use the SQL "BETWEEN" operator to see if there is a match.
