powershell Search IP's

The code below works fine. I does exactly what I want it to do it searches thru files and sub-folders for the given IP string.

The issue is that i think it is to limited. Is there a way to change this script where it looks for any IP any Range? I can cut out  10.102. to only search that range. I would like it to find any IP and any subnet?

Help!




CLS       
$RootString = "C:\Temp\"
$SearchString = "10.102.72.55"


$FileName = Get-ChildItem $RootString  -recurse | Select-String -pattern $SearchString | group path | select name

$FileName | Out-GridView

$FileName | Out-file -width 300 -filepath "C:\Users\ltorres\Desktop\DataDumps_PS\pshellOutPut_ConfigVar.txt"

Change
$SearchString = "10.102.72.55"
to
$SearchString = "\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}"

Try with
$SearchString = '^(?:[0-9]{1,3}\.){3}[0-9]{1,3}$'

Open in new window

Or try the following for an accurate match..
$SearchString = '^(25[0-5]|2[0-4][0-9]|[01]?[0-9][0-9]?)\.(25[0-5]|2[0-4][0-9]|[01]?[0-9][0-9]?)\.(25[0-5]|2[0-4][0-9]|[01]?[0-9][0-9]?)\.(25[0-5]|2[0-4][0-9]|[01]?[0-9][0-9]?)$'

This did not work becasue I have tried Hardcoded IP and search had results.

This returned nothing
$SearchString = '^(25[0-5]|2[0-4][0-9]|[01]?[0-9][0-9]?)\.(25[0-5]|2[0-4][0-9]|[01]?[0-9][0-9]?)\.(25[0-5]|2[0-4][0-9]|[01]?[0-9][0-9]?)\.(25[0-5]|2[0-4][0-9]|[01]?[0-9][0-9]?)$'
                                           
The pattern has to be [1-255] .[0-255].[0-255].[0-255] not sure how that translates in Powershell.

This is what I get..
PS C:\> $SearchString = '^(25[0-5]|2[0-4][0-9]|[01]?[0-9][0-9]?)\.(25[0-5]|2[0-4][0-9]|[01]?[0-9][0-9]?)\.(25[0-5]|2[0-4][0-9]|[01]?[0-9][0-9]?)\.(25[0-5]|2[0-4][0-9]|[01]?[0-9][0-9]?)$'
PS C:\> "10.26.35.45" -match $searchstring
True
PS C:\> "1.26.35.45" -match $searchstring
True
PS C:\> "1.26.35.255" -match $searchstring
True
PS C:\> "01.26.35.255" -match $searchstring
True
PS C:\> "999.999.999.999" -match $searchstring
False

is the exact match for [1-255] .[0-255].[0-255].[0-255].

What about this..
$SearchString = '(25[0-5]|2[0-4][0-9]|[01]?[0-9][0-9]?)\.(25[0-5]|2[0-4][0-9]|[01]?[0-9][0-9]?)\.(25[0-5]|2[0-4][0-9]|[01]?[0-9][0-9]?)\.(25[0-5]|2[0-4][0-9]|[01]?[0-9][0-9]?)'

I also may need to add filer because

This
Microsoft.SqlServer.ScriptTask, Version=9.0.242.0
 
The 9.0.242.0 looks like an IP

and yes now the last one returned the same count of records as
$SearchString = "\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}"

But since I dont the IP it found I dont know whats what.

Is there a way also with the path string that gets returned to file return the actual IP it found?
That will help me remove the  9.0.242.0 version

If you can give a sample input file? and the result which you are looking then it will be easy for us...

I'm not seeing an IP anywhere in that file.  Plenty of version references that look like an IP though.  Would need an examples of lines that actually have an IP to see if there is some portion of the string to help recognize what is and isn't an IP.

I don't know if there is a better way to approach this as it seems to be SQL related, and I know very little about SQL and related PowerShell commands.

Thats just it I got a bunch of results not because it had an IP but because it had a version number for SQL. Could you do a case where "SQL" or "Version" not within a distance from Said version Number and bring back those?

footechCommented:
I believe so.  That's why I asked for some samples of lines with an IP to see the differences.  I want to make sure nothing else is being missed.  Then we should be able to construct the appropriate regex.

I get the following match from the file...I think it's all version not IP's.. Do you have a file which contain both IP's and version? Even you can post the sample line's which contain IP's..

9.0.242.0
9.0.242.0
9.0.242.0
