Using Visual Studio 2008 and VB.net

I have a Windows Forms application that calls a SharePoint (WSS 3.0) web service on a SharePoint intranet site with this code:
Dim lists As MyLists.Lists = New MyLists.Lists()
lists.UseDefaultCredentials = True
lists.Url = gblstrListsURL
Dim nodes As XmlNode = lists.GetListItems(strDocumentLibrary, "", Nothing, Nothing, "", Nothing, Nothing)

Open in new window

We are migrating from WSS 3.0 to SharePoint Online (Office 365) so I created a new web reference to point to the new SharePoint Online site.

This line
Dim nodes As XmlNode = lists.GetListItems(strDocumentLibrary, "", Nothing, Nothing, "", Nothing, Nothing)

Open in new window

now produces this error

System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException: Server was unable to process request - Access id denied. (Exception for HRESULT: 0x8007005 (E_ACCESSDENIED))

I am a site administrator on the SharePoint Online site.  I found a method to authenticate with SharePoint Online at this link:
http://blogs.msdn.com/b/cjohnson/archive/2011/05/03/authentication-with-sharepoint-online-and-the-client-side-object-model.aspx 
or  Authentication with SharePoint Online

So, my code is now:

Dim authCookie As System.Net.CookieCollection
authCookie = ClaimClientContext.GetAuthenticatedCookies("https://MyDomain.sharepoint.com/sites/testSite/", 925, 525)
Dim lists As MyLists.Lists = New MyLists.Lists()
lists.CookieContainer = New System.Net.CookieContainer()
lists.CookieContainer.Add(authCookie)

However, the program is getting a compile error and will not build for this reason:

Name ‘ClaimClientContext’ is not declared.

I’ve tried unsuccessfully to resolve the problem by searching for a Namespace or project reference.  Any suggestions on how to fix or do this a different way?  Thanks

I imagine you've seen this;

http://blogs.msdn.com/b/sharepointdev/archive/2011/05/12/connecting-to-sharepoint-online-web-services.aspx

My reading of this is that there's a reference needed to  System.Windows.Forms.WebBrowser

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh147177.aspx

Though in the original article I'm confused by the reference to using MSDN.Samples.ClaimsAuth;

I'm wondering if there's something available in their sample here: http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/Remote-Authentication-in-b7b6f43c  ?
