Modbus TCP/IP in Visual Basic

I am programming an application in Visual Basic to read and write to a modular through Modbus TCP/IP. I have been successful getting it to communicate through a serial cable in VB, but I am having problems when it comes to communicating with it though TCP/IP in VB. Does anyone know of a good ActiveX controller that will allow me to do this or anything else that might help?

The link http://www.brothersoft.com/modbus-activex-control-108015.html that you gave me (it is actually for the program Modbus ActiveX available at http://modbustools.com/), worked great. It took me a little bit to figure out how to use it but it worked. It was also $850 USD cheaper than anything else I looked at. Thinks ^_^
