Nicely done, but #119 is in error as of this writing. It matches a single digit, or two digits, or a one or two followed by two digits under six. That means it won't match its own one-liner number! Or any other useful numbers like 192 and 168 and 127, which come up a lot in IP addresses.

I believe a correct regexp would be:

/^1?\d{1,2}|2[0-4]\d|25[0-5]$/

That matches:

- any one or two digits, optionally starting with "1", so that's 0-9, 00-99, and also 100-199 and (redundantly but harmlessly) 10-19 again
- 200 to 249
- 250 to 255

I haven't run a test, but I'm reasonably confident that it's right.
