The task is to validate the IP address both IPv4 as well as IPv6. Here we are going to use RegExp to solve the problem.

  • RegExp: Which split the IP address on .(dot) and check for each element whether they are valid or not(0-255).

Example 1: This example using the approach discussed above.

</head>
<center>
 
    <body style="text-align:center;">
        <h1 style="color:green;"> 
        GeeksForGeeks 
    </h1>
        <p id="GFG_UP"
           style="font-size: 15px;
                  font-weight: bold;">
        </p>
        <button onclick="GFG_Fun()">
            click here
        </button>
        <p id="GFG_DOWN"
           style="font-size: 24px;
                  font-weight: bold;
                  color: green;">
        </p>
        <script>
            var up = document.getElementById('GFG_UP');
            var down = document.getElementById('GFG_DOWN');
            var addr = '172.169.43.1';
            up.innerHTML =
              "Click on the button to validate the IP Address.<br>"
            + addr;
 
            function GFG_Fun() {
                down.innerHTML =
/^(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]?)$/.test(addr);
