An IP is nothing more than a 32 BIT number. In programmatic since,
all programs care about. For ease of human intervention, an IP address
is typically shown by its 4 8bit numbers (dot notation). Each 8 bits is
a number from 0-255.
To convert from a dot notation to a decimal, covert each octet to
hex form (hint, use Calculator in Scientific format) and then put
them together into an eight digit hex number. Then finally use
Calc again to convert the 8 digit hex to a decimal number and thats
what you use.
18.104.22.168 = CD.01.02.03 = CD010203 = 3439395331
Your example shows:
3513713141 = D16F01F5 = 209.111.01.245
