IP Address being truncated

mrhatch's profile image mrhatch posted 3 years ago in Creating a connection Permalink

When connecting to a server the ip address is truncated at xxx.xxx.xx.x for instance if the ip of the machine was 192.168.92.134 it would be truncated to 192.168.92.1 and of course you cannot log in to a server that does not exist. I tried creating a host entry and using the name but still have the same problem. Is this a known issue? I have attached a screenshot with both the error and the current version numbers of HeidiSQL.

This IP handling should be entirely a server-side task. Are you sure that's not your external IP address?

The ip address is assigned to the server by corporate DNS. It is an internal ip address, I am running the HeidiSQL client on my development desktop while the database is on a server. The specification for an IPV4 ip address is xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx and it appears that it is being truncated at 9 characters because most likely because connections are being made to 127.0.0.1 I was hoping that we could get that changed.
