    Storing an IP Address in a Variable?

    Hey everyone. I'm new here and I'm also a noob to C++, obviously.

    Is there a way to store an IP address into a variable with C++? I've been searching these forums as well as the Internet for probably a total of 6 hours these past couple of days, and have found nothing (or nothing I understand, at least.)

    I'd really appreciate any help that anyone can give me. Thanks in advance

    Well you could do
    Code:
    char IP[[]="127.0.0.1";
    There is the inet_atoi() function for coverting an IP in dotted ascii format to an integer suitable for use with socket functions.
