Wait for and Answer a call with the modem in VB.NET

I have spent hours scouring the net to no avail.  I need to write a program that will wait for a call, and then answer it and establish a connection between the caller and the receiver.  So far I have made no progress whatsoever.  I looked into MSComm but it doesn't work for me because I dont have Visual Basic 6.  And even if I did I wouldn't want to use it because this software will eventually be commercial and I cant expect everyone who purchases it to register it with VB6(I have registered it with regsvr32 also and that doesnt make any difference).

Anyways, I would really like it if anyone could get me pointed in the right direction.  Where can i search, what can I search for.  I do not need to write the code to dial the modem, only the code to answer the call and receive data.

Neither of those are especially helpful.  I don't want to connect to the internet, I want to accept a connection from another modem.  I will look into both of them more and if they happen to lead me to the answer then I will reward you the points but if anyone has anything better then please post it.

Well, I ended up figuring it out on my own, I guess ill just split the points between you because at least you both bothered to respond.  If anyone finds this page in a search engine, a good place to start is http://www.rainyjay.com/tapi/tapi.htm , specifically the Microsoft Platform SDK TAPI samples are what really got me going.
