What is the equivalent for the INET control in VB.NET?

I need my application to log on to an "FTP" server and do a "PUT." I can do this using the INET control in VB6, but how do I can do this in VB.NET? Are there additional concerns for PROXY and FIREWALLS?
As .NET applications can use COM interop to call COM and ActiveX controls, there's nothing stopping you from continuing to use the INET control. However, if you want to use a fill .NET control you can look at something like FTP.NET or PowerTCP FTP for .NET.
