Searching for IP Addresses

I have a fresh installation of Confluence -- and I've thrown some pages together for testing. I'm having problems searching for IP addresses... Any tips?  or does it just not do that?  My hope was that I could search for the first two octets of an IPV4 Address  (i.e. 192 168 ) and have it bring up data in pages with 192.168

Thanks in advance,

It won't work to find the last two octets, but it's something!  It's cool to know that regex would work, but that'd be a real stretch for some of the people to do each time.  Thanks for the suggestion though!


I just came across the same issue, although I found I would get a hit if the (full) IP I was searching for didn't have the protocol in front, ie:

If the IP is part of a path, ie:

The search wouldn't find it either.

Thanks for the tips on searching with wildcard and regex though!
