VB.NET - help with handling the RS-232 port

  bines 19:05 06 Jun 03

I am just starting to study VB.NET.

I want to know how to read from and write to the RS-232 serial ports on my PC.

I've searched the Help topics on System I/O. All they seem to talk about is reading and writing to files.

How do I tell it I want the serial port and not a disc file?

Any hints and pointers to relevant VB.NET help would be much appreciated. I have found a multithreaded article for C++ but it doesn't address VB.NET of course so doesn't really point me anywhere.
