Splunk Search

Can I search IPs with no syntax?


Can't I just search an IP within Splunk with no syntax, just and if there is any data or this IP is simply being accessed by one of our users, then I should be able to see it.

Are there better ways to find it? 

Overall I want to see if two specific IPs are connecting to Splunk, if so, then broaden the search.

You can use quotation marks like so and use OR if you want to search for multiple IPs

index=yourindex  "" OR ""

Or extract all ips:

index=yourindex yourkeyword
|rex max_match=0 "(?<ip>\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3})"
|search ip=""
