We are going to start by explaining in which situations we may be interested in obtaining IP addresses of any text and what advantages it can bring us. Then we will talk in depth about IPv4 Text-utils Extractor. In this sense, we will talk about how the program works, its characteristics and how it is used. Next, we will put a practical example of use. In addition, we will talk about other tools from the same developer that can help us in working with texts.
Why use IPv4 Extractor to get text IP addresses
On some occasion you may have been forced to extract IP addresses from any text. If there are many and the text is long, this work can be long and boring. A priori, some will think that it is not so useful, but when the moment comes to you, you will surely appreciate it. One of the situations is when, for example, we work with DNS servers. Sometimes we use programs like DNS Jumper or DNS Benchmark to check the status of DNS servers or choose the one that interests us the most.
Therefore, on some occasions we are going to need to introduce some new ones, which can sometimes be many. Imagine, for example, that you have a large text or list with many IPv4 addresses of DNS servers. Here the thing would change a lot from having to go collecting the IPs one by one, to showing them to you in a single step. Those using programs to ping multiple IPs with programs such as Ping GUI or PingInfoView could also benefit from IPv4 Extractor.
In summary, everything that requires the extraction of random IPs in a text will simplify our work in a remarkable way.
What is IPv4 Extractor and how does it work
It is an online tool, that means that we will not need to perform any type of installation. Simply to use it we will need a browser and an internet connection. The way to work to get IP addresses from any text is from an input text:
Then it would analyze that text and just leave the IP addresses skipping all the words.
With this we would have as a result all the IP addresses of any text using one of the supported file types or using the clipboard.
Get started with IPv4 Extractor
As we mentioned earlier, IPv4 Text-Utils Extractor is an online web tool. Therefore, in order to use it, you have to go to their websites by clicking on the following link. Then a screen like this will appear:
Its operation is very simple, now we are going to explain each of the parts of the program step by step. In the red boxes you have the most important options marked. This online tool to extract IP addresses from any text divides the screen into two large sections. The first one on the left is Input and it is the area in which we are going to put our text by loading a file or using the clipboard. Secondly, Output It is the part where only the result will appear, that is, the IPV4 addresses that the text contains.
Then in the left part that serves for the full text we have:
- Load file: to load that file that contains words and IPs.
- Submit: used to send the information and then on the right it offers you only the IP addresses of any text.
On the other hand, in the area on the right we also have other options:
- Download file: to save the results in a txt file.
- Copy to Cipboard: used to copy it to the clipboard. Then we could paste it into any document that supports it like notepad, Word, and more.
Usage examples to extract IP addresses from any text
One of the ways we could work would be by writing our own text in Input and press Submit. You could also work selecting a text with IPs with Control + C to copy it and then paste it with Control + V. Here you have an example with a short written text.
It could also be the case that we wanted to collect the DNS servers from an article or tutorial. In this case, we are going to use Google Chrome for Windows. To do this, we go to the three option points in the upper right corner, More tools and click on Save as.
Here what we have to do is in «type» choose «Web page (HTML only)»Which is one of the files that it supports and click on Keep.
The next thing we have to do in IPv4 Extractor is select the html file in Load file and then click on Submit. So we can extract the IP addresses of any text as in this example from RedesZone:
Also Peerblock, a program to maintain anonymity with the use of P2P programs, has a list of servers to block. In this case it is a text file and although I did not put it among the supported ones it also works. To open it we will Load file and we put the location of the file.
Next, once the values are loaded, click on Submit to see the IPs.
Remember that, in all cases, you have Download file to save the IPs to a file or Copy to Clipboard to copy it to the clipboard.
Other text-utils tools
In addition, IPv4 Extractor, text-utils has other online tools that can help us collect information. We are going to name them all and add an example of what they do. One of them would be E-mail Extractor that would select the emails from a text:
We would also have Hashtag Extractor for the Hashtag of social networks:
Another Number Extractor related to numbers:
Not without forgetting about Remove Special Characters to remove special characters.
Finally, it should be noted that thanks to the text-utils on-line tools we can obtain the IP addresses of any text and other information as you have seen in this section.
