I did something like this

ip_address=`"${results}"|tail +3`;
echo "$ip_address\n";

I need to retreive the ip address and do ssh to that ip address. But gives me this error for the above.

 ip_address      ^J --------------- ^J  :  not found

ip_address      ^J --------------- ^J  :  not found
 Please advise.
you'd have to do it like this:

ip_address=`echo "${results}"|tail +3`
