Filtering the log files by IP ADDRESS

In my attempt to weed out the forum logs (/index.php?action=admin;area=logs) I am facing a problem with IP-addresses.

I can filter by ONE (!) IP Address, example: /index.php?action=admin;area=logs;sa=errorlog;desc;filter=ip;value=

But what I would like to filter is -speaking with this case- 17.121.112.*
How do I do that?

Or even 17.121-125.*
How do I do that?
At least these 16 (getting more???)steps must be completed for SMF2.1 Final.

You can actually do this under Profile Info, under Track User, IP Address.

You can change the IP address into a range using the * as a wildcard, & it will show all error messages for that IP range - and list all users in that range.

It doesn't show all the logs, only the error log.
Address the process rather than the outcome.  Then, the outcome becomes more likely.   - Fripp
