As i said before, I check this regex in tools like regexCoach or
regexBuddy. It is valid and match what i want.
I found that multitail compile the regex with look ahead assertion if i
escape the question mark like \? , but it still dont work anyway.

    multitail -em "(\d\.\d\.108\.226|\d\.\d\.108\.226|^\[.+\] \[\S\] )"

but I think what you really want is the context option in GNU's grep (i.e. -A or
--after-context=NUM), to match the line with the IP address and show the next
line... I don't see that option in multitail.  You can ask for a new feature.
Generic line (i mean line not assigned to IP) are not always folling something. The 3 line of sample is not ordered. So next line that following the matching one is
not a valid solution for me.
I try your alternative,  some remarks
- \d\.\d\.108\.226 will match but not, you should wrote \d+\.\d+\.108\.226
- You had set twice 108.226 but this should be mistype.
- the \d char classes doesn't work for me in multiltail, but [0-9] do.
- ^\[.+\] \[\S\] will not match anything unless the second brackets pair hold only one no space char such  [a], should put [\S+] to match more stuff, anyway, even corrected, this regexp will match all line since all line start with the format '[date] [level] ', that's why i appended the negative look ahead assertion in my example. eg: start(?!\[) => match start if not followed by \[
- As for \d, \S is not working in my myltitail. 

Could someone confirm that standard base character classes for regexp work or not in multitail  ?
List of base character classes i know
classes <=> equivalent
\w <=> [a-zA-Z0-9_]
\W <=> [^a-zA-Z0-9_]
\s <=> [ \t\n\r]
\S <=> [^ \t\n\r]
\d <=> [0-9]
\D <=> [^0-9]

I have compiled multitail 4.2.0 on SunOS 5.9 Generic_112233-08 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Blade-1000
