Hi autoitxp

I use this for proper IP and Subnet mask

Func _isIPaddr($sIPAddr) ; returns true if argument is a plausible IP address
    If Not StringRegExp($sIPAddr, "^((25[0-5]|2[0-4]\d|[01]?\d?\d)\.){3}(25[0-5]|2[0-4]\d|[01]?\d?\d)$") Then Return SetError(1, 0, False)
    Return True
EndFunc   ;==>_isIPaddr

Func _isSNmask($sSNmask) ; returns true if argument is a correct 4 digit network mask
    If Not StringRegExp($sSNmask, "^(((255\.){3}(255|254|252|248|240|224|192|128|0+))|((255\.){2}(255|254|252|248|240|224|192|128|0+)\.0)|((255\.)(255|254|252|248|240|224|192|128|0+)(\.0+){2})|((255|254|252|248|240|224|192|128|0+)(\.0+){3}))$") Then Return SetError(1, 0, False)
    Return True
EndFunc   ;==>_isSNmask

Look in the Wiki, there are several examples that will verify a valid IP address. 99% of the RegEx examples out on the web aren't correct for real IP addresses. They'll identify an IP address of as valid (a lot of them will), and it's clearly not valid.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
