    Using piped commands and redirecting pipedinputstream ,pipedoutputstream is part of answer to this You will more than likely need to implement threads

    Notes and examples can be obtained from here

    Attached is one such example that I wrote In VB to show how you can use the stock standard output from ipConfig and capture the console output In VB GUI making the use of the tool far easier

    Eg from a dos command ipconfig / all using a piped command in dos

    ipconfig /all >> ip.txt capture the output using a pipe command and populates a text file with the ip configuration of your NIC

    I'm also attaching a Java implementation for you to show you how this done and the full Vb coding so that you can see that you will need to use Windows API calls to achieve this
