My dev and test tools are windows based and the apps deployed on linux, and it's been working well. But moving to win7 created problems because it uses ipv6 and code for ratings is for ipv4. Specifically, using ip2long to save the ip as an int (to prevent duplicate votes) doesn't work in test (win7/php5.3). I've got a quick-n-dirty workaround ("::1" converted to "0") but it seemed a good opportunity to add code to handle ipv6 properly when it's deployed.
I found a reference to do that in the help (http://php.net/manual/en/function.ip2long.php), but the referenced site no longer exists. I also found a page where Daniel Brown mentions that user notes referencing external sites are normally removed (http://www.lmpx.com/nav/article.php/news.php.net/php.notes/177158/read/inde x.html) but that the note added enough value to make an exception. I'd be very grateful if anyone could please point me to any other record of this code, or could post it if they have a copy. Also, I'm assuming the code returns 2 ints because of the size of ipv6, and it's fine to change my code to store that, but I'd like to know if there's a standard way to store ip addresses in sql for quick lookup?
