Take a look at the MySQL function INET_ATON and it's counterpart (I don't
remember what it's counterpart is but it should be easy to find once you
I know in PHP there is a function that will convert x.x.x.x to an int and
then you just put that int into a field in your database and then use the
INET_ATON function in MySQL to select the ips you want.
SELECT INET_ATON('126.96.36.199') > INET_ATON('188.8.131.52')
That should return TRUE. :)
Hope that helps.
