I am trying to use fscanf. I have a text file which contents - 127.0.0.1 test|localhost|127.0.0.1|clienthost|4350|testUser|test|login|No Message

I have struct which is -
typedef struct _packetFormat
{
   char ipServerAddress[100];
   char ipServerName[100];
   char ipClientAddress[100];
   char ipClientName[100];

   int portNum;
   char userName[100];
   char password[100];
   char command[100];
   char message[5000];

} PACKETFORMAT;

fscanf( f,
            "%s|%s|%s|%s|%s|%d|%s|%s|%s|%s",
                  packetData.ipServerAddress,
                  packetData.ipServerName,
                  packetData.ipClientAddress,
                  packetData.ipClientName,
                  packetData.portNum,
                  packetData.userName,
                  packetData.password,
                  packetData.command,
                  packetData.message);

I am trying to parse the file and populate the member variables of the struct. For some reason, I am not getting the correct values.  ipServerAddress should have "127.0.0.1 test". How can I achieve this with fscanf(), any other alternatives?
