How you extract the data will depend on how it is stored on the web page.
The issue will be parsing the HTML.
Do you have a sample page?

Without knowing more, I would use a System.Net.WebClient and use the .OpenRead() feeding it to a StreamReader.
That way, your page will be delivered to you as a stream and you can parse the lines.

OK. Here is a quick method to extract those address from that forum page:

Imports System
Imports System.IO
Imports System.Linq
Imports System.Net
Imports System.Text.RegularExpressions

Module Module1
   Function GetAddresses(ByVal strUrl As String) As List(Of String)
      Dim lst_strData As New List(Of String)
      Dim wc As New WebClient()
      Dim rxIpAndPort As New Regex("(?<IpAndPort>\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}:\d{1,})")
      Dim fileWebIn As New StreamReader(wc.OpenRead(strUrl))
      While Not fileWebIn.EndOfStream
         lst_strData =
            fileWebIn.ReadToEnd() _
               .Split("<>".ToCharArray(), StringSplitOptions.RemoveEmptyEntries) _
               .Where(Function(s) rxIpAndPort.IsMatch(s)) _
               .Select(Function(s) rxIpAndPort.Match(s).Groups("IpAndPort").Value) _
      End While

      Return lst_strData
   End Function
   Sub Main()
      Dim lst_strIpAndPort =

      lst_strIpAndPort.ForEach(Sub(s) Console.WriteLine(s))
   End Sub
End Module

You can pull out that function (GetAddresses()) and use it in a Web Browser app or WinForm or console app or whatever.
