+=head2 Custom fields
+=head3 IP
+This custom field allow you to associate IPs or IP ranges with a ticket.
+You can enter information in several formats:
+* IP - single IP with decimal units separated by dot;
+* IP range - interval separated with C<->, for example C<>,
+both ends of the interval are included range;
+* CIDR block - IP range in the CIDR format, for example 172.16/24, as you
+can see short form is also supported, RTIR converts ranges in this format
+to IP-IP form.
+You can set value of the custom field on create or later through edit page
+of a ticket. You can enter several values at once, one per line, as well
+you could mix different formats. Create or update action fail if you enter
+incorrect values with an error message, you chould fix problem and resubmit
+form. On create IPs and CIDR blocks are also parsed from a text of the
+message and added to the ticket.
+=head4 Searching by IP
+You can use the same input formats to search by IP, CIDR or range. On a query
+builder page you can see input box for IP condition, enter an IP, range or CIDR
+and add the condition to the current query, return back to search results.
+You should see tickets that have at least one IP from the range. But you
+should note that validation of the input is not implemented in the query
+builder and you may enter incorrect value, be careful.
