Lifecycle: maturing CRAN status R build status Coverage status

ipaddress provides data classes and functions for working with IP addresses and networks. Its interface is inspired by the Python ipaddress module.

Here are some of the features:

For data visualization of IP addresses and networks, check out the ggip package.


You can install the released version of ipaddress from CRAN with:


Or you can install the development version from GitHub:

# install.packages("remotes")


Use ip_address() and ip_network() vectors either standalone or as columns in a data frame.


  address = ip_address(c("", "2001:db8::8a2e:370:7334")),
  network = ip_network(c("", "2001:db8::/80"))
#> # A tibble: 2 x 2
#>                   address          network
#>                 <ip_addr>       <ip_netwk>
#> 1   
#> 2 2001:db8::8a2e:370:7334    2001:db8::/80

Input character vectors are validated as they are parsed. Invalid inputs raise a warning and are replaced with NA.

ip_address(c("", ""))
#> Warning: Problem on row 2:
#> <ip_address[2]>
#> [1] <NA>

A variety of functions are provided to enable common tasks.

tibble(network = ip_network(c("", "2001:db8::/80"))) %>%
    first = network_address(network),
    last = broadcast_address(network),
    ipv6 = is_ipv6(network)
#> # A tibble: 2 x 4
#>            network         first                     last ipv6 
#>         <ip_netwk>     <ip_addr>                <ip_addr> <lgl>
#> 1 FALSE
#> 2    2001:db8::/80    2001:db8:: 2001:db8::ffff:ffff:ffff TRUE
