Convert the LUWID to an IP Address

Nam Wu

Convert the LUWID to an IP Address
Dear DB2-Listers,

Please help...I remember awhile back I came across a document from IBM
that showed me how to convert LUWID's (in hex) to an IP Address. Now, I'm
trying to find that doc again from IBM's site and it's not there any more.
If you have the instructions or know of another site that shows you how
to do it, please send it to me.

I vaguely remember something involving converting the LUWID's hex to bin,
but in certain increments to give you the four pieces of an IP address.

For example,
LUWID=GAD522F0.GF31.BC1C6356AAD8
IP addr Port Application

But I just can't figure out what were the specific instructions again.


Appreciate any help you can offer!!!

Nam

Re: Convert the LUWID to an IP Address
(in response to Nam Wu)
That thread was called "Locating the IP address of the DDF attempted
hacker" in January 2004. Unfortunately, the formula given was to simply
convert each byte to decimal, and I don't know how you would convert
GA.D5.22.F0 to decimal. Base 17, maybe?

Regards,
Cathy

Re: Convert the LUWID to an IP Address
(in response to Cathy Taddei)
From the UDB manuals regarding the appl_id - Application ID monitor element.


TCP/IP Format

IPAddr.Port.Application instance

Example

G91A3955.F33A.02DD18143340

Details

A TCP/IP-generated application ID is composed of three sections. The first section contains the IP address. It is represented as a 32-bit number displayed as a maximum of 8 hexadecimal characters. The second section contains the port number, which is represented as 4 hexadecimal characters. The third section contains a unique identifier for the instance of this application.

Note:

When the hexadecimal versions of the IP address or port number begin with 0-9, they are changed to G-P respectively. For example, "0" is mapped to "G", "1" is mapped to "H", and so on.

The IP address, AC10150C.NA04.006D07064947 is interpreted as follows:

The IP address remains AC10150C, which translates to 172.16.21.12.

The port number is NA04. The first character is "N", which maps to "7". Therefore, the hexadecimal form of the port number is 7A04, which translates to 31236 in decimal form.

I hope this helps,

Re: Convert the LUWID to an IP Address
(in response to Jeremy Schwartz)
The G at the front should be replaced by a 0. Then it makes sense. H would
be 1, I would be 2 etc. The idea is to make the whole thing a hex string
with the first char being alphabetic.

Re: Convert the LUWID to an IP Address
(in response to Martin Packer)
Why does the first character have to be alphabetic, why not just leave it
numeric and it would negate the need to grope around and find how to do the
conversion.

Just curious. There must be a reason .... mustn't there ?

Probably one of those arcane things left over from the Western

Much like our 80 char format standard.
