PHP FILTER_VALIDATE_IP Filter


PHP Filter Reference Complete PHP Filter Reference

Definition and Usage

The FILTER_VALIDATE_IP filter validates the value as an IP address.

  • Name: "validate_ip"
  • ID-number: 275

Possible  flags:

  • FILTER_FLAG_IPV4 - Requires the value to be a valid IPv4 IP (like 255.255.255.255)
  • FILTER_FLAG_IPV6 - Requires the value to be a valid IPv6 IP (like 2001:0db8:85a3:08d3:1319:8a2e:0370:7334)
  • FILTER_FLAG_NO_PRIV_RANGE - Requires that the value is not within an RFC specified private range IP (like 192.168.0.1)
  • FILTER_FLAG_NO_RES_RANGE - Requires that the value is not within the reserved IP range. This flag takes both IPV4 and IPV6 values

Example 1

<?php
$ip = "192.168.0.1";

if(!filter_var($ip, FILTER_VALIDATE_IP))
  {
  echo "IP is not valid";
  }
else
  {
  echo "IP is valid";
  }
?>

The output of the code will be:

IP is valid


Example 2

<?php
$ip = "2001:0db8:85a3:08d3:1319:8a2e:0370:7334";

if(!filter_var($ip, FILTER_VALIDATE_IP, FILTER_FLAG_IPV6))
  {
  echo "IP is not valid";
  }
else
  {
  echo "IP is valid";
  }
?>

The output of the code will be:

IP is valid
