How to check if a given ip falls between a given ip range using node js

Please pardon for this trival question

Given a set of Ip the set is quite large and might increase https://github.com/client9/ipcat/blob/master/datacenters.csv#L4

Small example set - first column start ip second - end ip range

enter image description here

I will get the user ip from the request . I need to check if the ip falls in these set of ranges . How do i accomplish this.

I have looked into ip_range_check and range_check.

But they donot check for a ip given given range . How is thhis possible in node js with utmost performance. I dont want to go for a exhaustive search as performance is a hight priority.

Please help something new and quite challenging so far to me.

Answer

This is quite easy if we convert the ips to simple numbers:

function IPtoNum(ip){
  return Number(
    ip.split(".")
      .map(d => ("000"+d).substr(-3) )
      .join("")
  );
}

Then we can check a certain range as:

 if( IPtoNum(min) < IPtoNum(val) &&    IPtoNum(max) > IPtoNum(val) ) alert("in range");

That can also be applied to a table:

const ranges = [
  ["..41", "192.168.45"],
  ["123.124.125"," 126.124.123"]
];

const ip = "125.12.125";
const inRange = ranges.some(
  ([min,max]) => IPtoNum(min) < IPtoNum(ip) &&   IPtoNum(max) > IPtoNum(ip)
);
Answer
//Use getCIDR from rangecalc
getCIDR("5.9.0.0", "5.9.255.255")
//This return 5.9.0.0/16

//You can then use ipRangeCheck from ip_range_check
ipRangeCheck("IP TO BE CHECKED", "5.9.0.0/16")
//returns true or false

Pretty sure there's other way to do this.
