Web Soap Call ASP.Net equivelent to PHP or Cold Fusion

Could someone provide me with the equivalent call in ASP.Net as  the following SOAP calls in Cold Fusion and PHP

              COLDFUSION :
              <cfinvoke webservice="http://webservices.vortexauction.com/functions.cfc?wsdl" method="AuctionAddBidder" returnvariable="result">
                  <cfinvokeargument name="Auctioneer_ID" value="0" />
                  <cfinvokeargument name="Access_Key" value="..." />
                  <cfinvokeargument name="Auction_ID" value="0" />
                  <cfinvokeargument name="External_Auction_ID" value="..." />
                  <cfinvokeargument name="Bidder_ID" value="0" />
                  <cfinvokeargument name="External_Bidder_ID" value="..." />
                  <cfinvokeargument name="Paddle_Number" value="..." />
                  <cfinvokeargument name="Username" value="..." />
                  <cfinvokeargument name="Password" value="..." />
              <cfdump var=#result# />
              PHP :
              class AuctionAddBidder {
                  function AuctionAddBidder($Auctioneer_ID, $Access_Key, $Auction_ID, $External_Auction_ID, $Bidder_ID, $External_Bidder_ID, $Paddle_Number, $Username, $Password)
                      $this->Auctioneer_ID = $Auctioneer_ID;
                      $this->Access_Key = $Access_Key;
                      $this->Auction_ID = $Auction_ID;
                      $this->External_Auction_ID = $External_Auction_ID;
                      $this->Bidder_ID = $Bidder_ID;
                      $this->External_Bidder_ID = $External_Bidder_ID;
                      $this->Paddle_Number = $Paddle_Number;
                      $this->Username = $Username;
                      $this->Password = $Password;
              $soapClient = new SoapClient("http://webservices.vortexauction.com/functions.cfc?wsdl");
              $params = new AuctionAddBidder(0, "...", 0, "...", 0, "...", "...", "...", "...");    
              $result = $soapClient->AuctionAddBidder($params);

I would like too simulate these calls in ASP.Net either in Visual Basic or C#

When you add a web reference with Visual Studio, it generates a proxy class that you can use to make the calls to the web service.  You would just need to create an instance of the proxy class, and then call the method with the appropriate values.

At this point I will have to give the points to Bob Learned...

Although I did not get a super satisfactory response he did point me in the right direction and I would like to share further links I discovered trying to address this issue posted.

Web Service in C#

This was very useful in figuring out how to actually consume the Web Service once the Web Reference was  set up as
Bob Learned had suggested.

Another useful link was how to set up the Web Reference in Visual Studio 2010 .Net
