Is this just the way it is or what? I have a piece of hardware that only accepts 3 digit octets for an ip. Im using a server at home and whatever IP i get served to test it. Unfortunately ,my address is not the type required and when I put it in a browser it resolves to 122.49.106.xxx. The IP gods could probably explain this. 

Is this just how the net works?

I have seen this in the past with leading zeros making it get interpreted as something else in some string to integer libraries.

Shouldnt stop you putting it in correctly in the effected software tho, and just put it with the leading zero in the dodgey hardware.

The dodgy device just looks at files on a web server, with a static address.......with a 3 digit octet ip.

I wonder if its something that the vhost config on the server is barfing on?

Is this one of those horrid cheap knockoffs of the GPRS GPS tracking devices that are all over ebay etc?

Do I understand you problem to be it won't let you enter a 2 digital decimal octet, and the leading zero is causing the value interpreted as octal? So what happens if you enter 122.075.106.xxx ?

What ever it is that resolves the address can't find the server.

I think the problem is that the OP just has a piece of untested back alley junk that has issues. The one we got seemed to have documentation for a totally different device because none of the codes worked, and the ones we were emailed were different and did "stuff" but never ended up working.

I was using a WD Worldbook which is a linux based NAS that I loaded a webserver on. Theory was there but I couldn't run logs to see what was happening. Brother is a FreeBSD guru and is running Apache on spare box. I fiddled with the settings till he saw some traffic.
