How large are this files?

You could read both files into an array and then compare the content in a loop.

And we could be nice and ask a mod to move this to the proper forum.

Can you filter out the noise? The question is not entirely clear to me, but I imagine you are only interested in the following line:

ADDRESS : 111.222.333.444

The problem is reduced to locating the above line in the second file and testing if occurs within that line. With the first file you need to know if the format is always the same or not. How can you identify these values unambiguously. Could there be any repeat addresses within the second file. Think it through.

As the OP has asked for the content of the files to be removed there is little point in keeping the thread open.
