UPS shipping rates

I am having a hard time finding examples/code/tutorials for ASP.NET for interfacing with the UPS rates and services service to get shipping info. It used MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP.3.0 and MSXML2.DOMDocument.4.0 with a custom parsed XML string before (in classic ASP).

I am just having problems converting this over to ASP.NET.

Please Help!

Thanks
