How to read a newsgroup?

I want to write a newgroup reader. Or rather I dont - I want an NNTP control that I can plop on my form and use.

Such a thing must exist, but is there a free one?

Failing this, can someone point me at some VB.NET code that allows me to connect to a named news server, get a list of the groups, get the number of articles etc etc?

I know nothing about sockets and precious little about tcpip/nntp, so I am not looking for references to how to build your own news reader from scratch.

Many thanks for any help
