Be clear.  Do you mean IP like TCP/IP?? Or do you mean IP like Integer Pointer??   What is a long TCP/IP address anyway??  They are all four numeric groupings aren't they?  like:  012.345.678.901  

I would like to help if you would clarify a bit.

The long IP is used in the IRC protocole to invoke, for example, a DCC Chat connexion. The algorythm takes the normal IP like: and converts it to something like: 456373647

Can't you just use TInAddr in Winsock.pas ?

  TInAddr = packed record
    case integer of
      0: (S_un_b: SunB);
      1: (S_un_w: SunW);
      2: (S_addr: u_long);

Set S_un_b and read S_addr.
