I am very new to html/javascript and I am struggling to have this fixed, would you please help!! I am trying to use DataTables jQuery plugin for sorting an IP-address column. I found followed many resources and but I couldn't full apply them as there is no full solution provided. I don't have a clue on how to define this column with the correct type:

"aoColumns": [
    null,
    { "sType": 'string-ip' },
    null
    ],

can someone fix the below code please?

    You were close, you missed out the columnDefs entry to say that column is an IP address - see example here :

         columnDefs: [
           { type: 'ip-address', targets: 4 }
         ]
