Regex catch bad octet in IP

Issue

Hi can someone explain me why last octet of the IP if 01 or 001 is not capched by this regex ?

(\.?)([2-9][5-9][6-9]|[3-9][0-9][0-9]|0[0-9][0-9]?)($|\.)

as example of the code

badOctedIPv4 := "(\\.?)([2-9][5-9][6-9]|[3-9][0-9][0-9]|0[0-9][0-9]?)($|\\.)"
ipv4Format := badOctedIPv4
matchMe := regexp.MustCompile(ipv4Format)
return matchMe.FindString(input)

the input data looks like:

10.185.248.71 - - [09/Jan/2015:19:12:06 +0000] 808840 "GET /inventoryService/inventory/purchaseItem?userId=20253471&itemId=23434300 HTTP/1.1" 500 17 "-" "Apache-HttpClient/4.2.6 (java 1.5)"

123.234.005.100 - - 1 bad
123.234.5.100 - - Last entry

the results returned by above code only finds all bad IP octets except the last one 001 or 01

Output of the program:

[123.234.005.100] : [.005.] : 123.234.005.100 - - 1 bad

Output explained:

  • first column […] its the full bad IP where bad octet been found
  • second column […] its the bad octet … first match is enough
  • third column is the full line passed to above func

Can some one point me what I am missing and why the 001 at the end is not matching the pattern ?

Thanks

Solution

@selbie thanks again for your help seems with all suggestions here i am getting closer to solve this, this regex
(\.|^)([2-9][5-9][6-9]|[3-9][0-9][0-9]|0[0-9]+) seems its catching for me almost all what needed

[ 123.234.145.01] : [  .01] : 123.234.145.01 - - 3 bad
[ 123.234.05.100] : [  .05] : 123.234.05.100 - - 2 bad
[123.234.005.100] : [ .005] : 123.234.005.100 - - 1 bad

and its skipping the good IP like 200.200.200.200 or 100.100.100.100
so we are getting closer to get that pattern working the only case now when i see is messed is when i have time string, 02:49:12 which starts the string 02 and so on as example:

[      127.0.0.1] : [   02] : 02:49:12 127.0.0.1 GET / 200
[      127.0.0.1] : [   02] : 02:49:35 127.0.0.1 GET /index.html 200
[      127.0.0.1] : [   03] : 03:01:06 127.0.0.1 GET /images/sponsered.gif 304
[      127.0.0.1] : [   03] : 03:52:36 127.0.0.1 GET /search.php 200
[      127.0.0.1] : [   04] : 04:17:03 127.0.0.1 GET /admin/style.css 200
[      127.0.0.1] : [   05] : 05:04:54 127.0.0.1 GET /favicon.ico 404
[      127.0.0.1] : [   05] : 05:38:07 127.0.0.1 GET /js/ads.js 200

so i am still looking for an answer what i am missing in that regular expression

================================

edit
ok this seems to do the work and its able to find the bad ip octet
(\.|^)([2-9][5-9][6-9]|[3-9][0-9][0-9]|0[0-9]+)([^:/-])
added the lat 3rd group ([^:/-]) to exclude any time format with two digits
