Too glib -- I forgot to note that this output alone is not clean
enough to generate a valid wordlist of IPs. The initial nmap output is
actually of the form:

[...]
Nmap scan report for 192.168.186.204
Nmap scan report for 192.168.186.205
Nmap scan report for 192.168.186.206
[...]

(It says 'scan report' even though no actual scanning is happening.)
So a bit more pre-processing is in order:

nmap -sL -Pn -n 192.168.0.0/16 172.16.0.0/12 10.0.0.0/8 | grep '^Nmap
scan report for' | cut -d\  -f5 >ips.list

I've drifted off-topic a bit, so we now return you to your regularly
scheduled john-users discussion. :-)

Though I'd be interested in discussion of native JtR ways to
efficiently generate IP addresses (and bare and fully-qualified
hostnames, for that matter).
