A.4.4 Addresses

IPv4 Address
dec-octet     [0-9]|[1-9][0-9]|1[0-9][0-9]|2[0-4][0-9]|25[0-5]
IPv4address   {dec-octet}\.{dec-octet}\.{dec-octet}\.{dec-octet}
IPv6 Address
h16           [0-9A-Fa-f]{1,4}
ls32          {h16}:{h16}|{IPv4address}
IPv6address   ({h16}:){6}{ls32}|

See RFC 2373 for details. Note that you have to fold the definition of IPv6address into one line and that it also matches the “unspecified address” “::”.



This pattern is nearly useless, since it allows just about any character to appear in a URI, including spaces and control characters. See RFC 2396 for details.
