Converting An IP Address To An Integer Using MySQL

Hello experts.
I'm trying to use this tutorial:
but i get an error:
You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'SET @ipAsNumber = INET_ATON( @ipAddress ); SET @ipAsAddress = INET_NTOA(' at line 4

error line:
SET @ipAddress = '#ipAddress#';

I'm using local cf9 , mysql 5.5

Any help?

Is your DSN configured to allow multiple statements?  It's disabled by default to protect you against sql injection.  When it's disabled, that example would cause an error because it contains multiple SQL statements.

Edit  But don't really need multiple statements. You could nest the functions instead:

      <cfqueryparam value="#ipAddress#" cfsqltype="cf_sql_varchar"> AS original
      , INET_ATON( <cfqueryparam value="#ipAddress#" cfsqltype="cf_sql_varchar"> ) AS ipAsNumber
      , INET_NTOA ( INET_ATON(<cfqueryparam value="#ipAddress#" cfsqltype="cf_sql_varchar">) ) AS ipAsAddress
       , CAST( INET_NTOA( INET_ATON(<cfqueryparam value="#ipAddress#" cfsqltype="cf_sql_varchar">) ) AS CHAR ) AS ipAsAddressString

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

you may want to be aware that INET_ATON &  INET_NTOA are for IPv4 only

there are IPv6 equivalent functions (that deal with both IPv4 & IPv6)

Hi PortletPaul
Thank you very much for your advise
seems I've been too late in just about everything today - but it would be a shame to work purely on IPv4 then discover you need to change for IPv6 some time later - particularly when this is avoidable.
PanosAuthor Commented:
Yes PortletPaul
You are absolutely right.
I'm very thankful for your post because without that i would go on with INET_ATON &  INET_NTOA.
:) happy coding
> there are IPv6 equivalent functions

Nice one, I didn't realize they'd added v6 functions!

@panosms - Just double check the max value. I'm not sure it always fits inside a "long"...
