descriptionIPs and Web text to numbers

more_horiz
Hi Everyone!

It's been a while since i've needed help.
The 'Ping' command will convert a text IP to numbers; but how do i combine the web text stuff with the numbers? Simple concatenation doesn't work!

This is a link to an article:
www.nydailynews.com/opinion/obama-weak-war-terrorism-article-1.1159003

After converting the IP to numbers, this is the most that works with concatenation:
208.64.111.142/opinion

This is the web text stuff that's leftover:
/obama-weak-war-terrorism-article-1.1159003?pgno=1

How do i hook them together? I have a hex editor and ascii charts. Are there any control characters i need to learn? I also found some 'funny' looking links that when clicked on go to plain ole websites. I would like to learn how to do that; but i don't even know what it's called. Let me think

I think what you tried should work. Keep in mind that what ever is to the right of the domain name may be case sensitive.

I found a solution(one of many, no doubt):
use the HEX value (preceded by '%') of the ASCII code for all of the rest (except for the '/' and the 1st character after the slash) for example:

208.109.177.127/b%75%79%69%6E%67%2D%73%69%6C%76%65%72%2D%30%39%32%31%32%30%31%32%35
Hooray!

I found a problem(one of many, no doubt):

It would appear that not all IP addresses are unique. For example:
www.nowlebanon.com
when 'pinged' yields the IP address 173.248.148.38; yet, this IP leads me to some DumbAss Mail sever.

What's Up with THAT??? Whoa!

This is a 'funny looking' URL:
y.ahoo.it/d6bc0

When pasted into the browser it goes to:
smallcap-report.com/Survey.aspx?stock=LODE

Will somebody please tell me what this is called and where do I learn how to do it?
