    This is a two part batch script that generates a specified number of random ip addresses, or can take input from an external script file to pass to the utility. There are much faster ways of doing this of course but hey it works. Save as GenIps.bat and RunIps.bat in the same directory. From the command line type GenIps to retrieve usage info.

    Batch Script for generating random ip addresses.
    --------------------------------------------------------
    (GENIPS.BAT)
    Code:
    @echo off
    :: Script 1
    
    REM The first numerical digit in a scope represents the value to not exceed
    REM The second numerical digit represents the value to not go below
    
    :SET_LOCAL_ENVIRONMENT
    REM Set the number of Ips to generate
    	set one=%~1
    
    REM Set the first group 1/4 scope ip range
    	set two=%~2
    	set three=%~3
    
    REM Set the second group 2/4 scope ip range
    	set four=%~4
    	set five=%~5
    
    REM Set the third group 3/4 scope ip range
    	set six=%~6
    	set seven=%~7
    
    REM Set the fourth group 4/4 scope ip range
    	set eight=%~8
    	set nine=%~9
    
    REM Check user parameters
    :USER_PARAMETERS
    	if /i [%~1]==[] (goto :USAGE)
    	if /i [%~1]==[-script] (if /i [%~2]==[-?] (goto :USAGE2))
    	if /i [%~1]==[-script] (goto :RUN_SCRIPT)
    
    REM Check if using external script
    	if %~1 leq 1 goto :RUN_IPS
    	if %~1 geq 1 goto :RUN_IPS
    
    REM Pass command line parameters to child application RunIps
    :RUN_IPS
    	set CommandCode=1
    	call RunIps
    	goto :eof
    
    REM Pass script parameters to child application RunIps
    :RUN_SCRIPT
    	set CommandCode=2

    	echo USAGE:  
    	echo.
    	echo  GenIps [# x's 2 -^>] [9 Args]
    	echo.
    	echo EXAMPLE:
    	echo.
    	echo  GenIps 25 255 192 150 50 250 120 170 40
    	echo.
    	echo NOTES:
    	echo.
    	echo  The 1st digit represents the number of
    	echo  Ips to produce while the next 8 digits
    	echo  Grouped in sets of 2 represent one of
    	echo  The four places within an ip address
    	echo  The first digit in a group represents
    	echo  The max value while the second digit
    	echo  Represents the low value. Low values
    	echo  Should never be greater than the max
    	echo  Values they preceed.
    	echo  At least 2 ips are needed to Generate
    	echo  A successfull exit code
    	echo.
    	echo  Type: "GenIps -script -?" to retrieve
    	echo  The script usage within GenIps
    	echo.
    	echo DETAILED_EXAMPLES:
    	echo.
    	echo  GenIps 2 192 192 168 168 1 1 100 50
    	echo.
    	echo  The above command would produce output
    	echo  like so . . .
    	echo.
    	echo  192.168.1.78
    	echo  192.168.1.92
    	echo.
    	echo  Taking the name of the program as parameter "%%0"
    	echo  %%1 == "2" being the number of Ips to generate
    	echo  . . . and parameters %%2-%%9 being the average
    	echo  If you use the same values for both greater than
    	echo  And less than that place holder will stay as is
    	echo  Another example . . .
    	echo.
    	echo  GenIps 5 255 192 255 168 200 100 255 143
    	echo.

    	echo  A group consist of two numerical values single spaced
    	echo  255 192 under "Group01" would be our first group in

    Quick question: What would be the best use for this?
