Remove substring .net

I have a ssh tunnel that send the following command

"netstat -ntl |grep 4400"

It returns it to a string, here is my issue

I am doing this to check for open ports on remote ends, I need the string that comes back to not have the "netstat -ntl |grep 4400" in it.

I just need it to remove that 1 command from the string but display all other information.

Thank You In Advanced.

Can you not use

String newString = oldString.Replace("netstat -ntl |grep 4400", "");

where oldString is the original one...


Is 4400 the port number?

let's say that you're checking other ports too:
      "netstat -ntl |grep 4400"
      "netstat -ntl |grep 900"
      "netstat -ntl |grep 80"

and that you have a string called "returnString" that is returning something like:

      "netstat -ntl |grep 4400 Bla, Bla, Bla A..."
      "netstat -ntl |grep 900 Bla, Bla, Bla B..."
      "netstat -ntl |grep 80 Bla, Bla, Bla C..."

you could do something like (VB):

        returnString = returnString.Replace("netstat -ntl |grep ", "")
        returnString = returnString.Substring(InStr(returnString, " "), returnString.Length - InStr(returnString, " "))

this will return:

      "Bla, Bla, Bla A..."
      "Bla, Bla, Bla B..."
      "Bla, Bla, Bla C..."
