SQL Question

Select IP address from SQL Server column

I'm getting an output from one of our scripts that sends over IP address mixed with Host-names, so what I'm trying to do is setup a query that will differentiate the IPs from the Host-names so I can try to resolve the using Powershell (or something else) later. My question is, how can I select only the IP addresses from the row when my data looks something like below (just making stuff up to get the point out there).

What I would want to get back would be just

Edit I've seen some things suggesting
, however I'm not sure how that would work with the FQDN being in there.

Based on the reference to parsename(), I am assuming SQL Server:

where ip like '%.%.%.%' and        -- has three periods
      ip not like '%.%.%.%.%' and  -- does not have four periods
      ip not like '%[^0-9.]%'      -- has only numbers and periods

In almost any other database, you can use a regular expression.
