Class of IP bug with IP integer carrier ?Blitz3D Forums/Blitz3D Bug Reports/Class of IP bug with IP integer carrier ?
| Hi, I'm coding a client/server game application.|
I'm testing the software on 4 PC dual processor INTEL genuine XP service pack2 with directx9.0c, blitz3D updated at 1.99 version (weird in the IDE dialog still appears 1.98)
I have a problem when setting my LAN on a 192.x.x.x class of IPs.
Apparently the internal Blitz IP integer number returned using this class of IP on the machines, breaks the numbers or something because ANY connection (machines ping each other no problem) can be done between the machines.
Changing the Class to an 10.x.x.x class, or whatever below number 100 for the first row in the machines, everything work just fine.
I possibly discovered the bug:
The ip integer for a eg: 192.168.1.x IP is: -1062731417
a very large negative number !
But for eg: 90.168.1.x is just: 168427523
Is the problem of NO CONNECTION MADE coming from this "bug" ?
Thank you for the attention
I do an example to clarify better.
| I post some code to explain the problem.|
If you are under a LAN with IP mask like: 192.168.x.x
Try this code and see the integer number is a negative one.
Machines are pinging each other (the clients to the server and the server to the clients) no problem.
I launch the server program hosting on 192.168.1.101
The clients just cannot connect!!
If I change all the LAN ip mask to 18.104.22.168 everything work just fine, and FAST!
