I'm trying to do this equastion: http://www.hackingspirits.com/cyb_forensic/fsic_articles/loc_place.html

However i keep getting a "The operation overflows at compile time in checked mode";

All are ok except for 16777216*202.  I've tried a few things, like doubles, ints longs and tried to make them unsigned aswell.  Is there a way to handle such large numbers?

If there isn't a standard .net way, my guess is i have to create my own class and catch how much overflow there is?

           uint aaa = 202;
            uint bbb = 16777216;
            IP_Number = aaa * bbb;

It took the 202 and left it as a normal int.

I tried the m, it turns the numbers into a decimal, and if i turn the origional number into a decimal that works 2.
Thanks.
