wrong hyperlink in webserver


Recommended Posts


I have a table with all my IP adress of all my connected things.

I made a webpage, showing my table with all the IP adresses 

when clicking on a field in the table, I put the IPadress (ASCII) into a tag -> IP adres (reading the selected row of the datatable)

on the webpage a put a hyperlink "GO TO" with the adress of this hyperlink the value of tag IP adress

but when clicking on the hyperlink, he's calling another IP adress.....

I did an inspect of the webpage (clicking right mouse button 😁) and found something strange....


BUT I FOUND a solution ? -> the problem is the leading zero's of the IP adres in my tag....

when I remove the leading zero's, then I have a correct hyperlink (only tried one (



something to keep in mind...

This is actually, not the Web Server or the PLC's fault. Here is just a simple example of a single hyperlink that reproduces the problem (No Web server or JavaScript are involved, just plain HTML).

You can see that it navigates to instead of

41 in Oct base (8 base, digits 0-7) is exactly 33, and if you put .010 instead of 041, it will go to 8 (since 10 in oct base is 8).

I'm guessing that when padding a zero before  the number, chrome (and probably all the browsers) is parsing it in Oct base.

in Ping, when using a leading zero it interprets the number as hex rather than decimal

Ah! Octal, not hex.
