I was recently reading through a security paper on packet storm security's website talking about some general security related topics. In a second about "tunneling" firewalls it discussed a way to convery IPV4 addresses into non-octet decimal form. Here's the link:
It provided the following formula to convert the IP address 126.96.36.199 to 3353565329:
32(8) = 256
145_+ -= 3353565329 (new identifier)
I was wondering if someone would not mind explaining this more in depth and perhaps explain how to make the same conversion because the document was extremely vague or at least I can't figure it out. If someone could just tell me what this alternative form is called so I could look up more information on it, it'd be appriciated.

i think that is too complicate. Why not just convert all from dotted to hexadecimal form and AFTER convert to decimal format?
188.8.131.52 ==> C7.E3.58.91 ==> C7E35891 ==> 3353565329
Obviouslly, its the same idea of your example but.....
FORMAT C: Yes ...Yes??? ...Nooooo!!! ^C ^C ^C ^C ^C
