What is phpIP Management
phpIP management is a complete IPv4 address management suite, built
to handle the complexity of managing today's IP address space. phpIP Management was
built to scale and address the full lifecycle of IP address space using techniques that
are not administratively intensive. The frontend is completely PHP driven.

Due to the many functions of phpIP, a user based management tool is built in so you can add
users and give them rights to areas of phpIP. This would allow someone to create users
that can add/remove cidr and prefixe blocks, while others can only view the IP list. Each user also
maintains their own theme/style when viewing IP lists.
(Classless Inter-Domain Routing)
Originally, Internet addresses were classified as A, B, or C. The early classification system did not envision
the massive popularity of the Internet, and is in danger of running out of new unique addresses. CIDR is an
addressing scheme that allows one IP address to designate many IP addresses. A CIDR IP address looks like a normal
IP address except that it ends with a slash followed by a number; for example, 192.168.0.0/16. CIDR is described in
The IP network prefix specifies how many addresses are covered by the CIDR
address, with lower numbers covering more addresses. An IP network prefix
of /12, for example, can be used to address 1,048,576 former Class C addresses.
(Lightweight Directory Access Protocol)
A client-server protocol for accessing a directory service. It runs over TCP,
and can be used to access a standalone LDAP directory service or to access a
directory service back-ended by X.500. LDAP was initially used as a front-end
to X.500. LDAP can be used to help provide "Single Sign-on" across
