I've been searching for help on how to accomplish this with limited success so I hope that someone here can guide me or point me in the right direction.

I apologize in advance if I misuse terms since I'm new to this.

Coding in Text-Pad with VB (Can't get Visual Studio Express to download, but probably won't help in time allotted since I don't know the IDE)
Third party company will be sending me an HTTP POST with SOAP content.

1) Anyone know of a really, really basic tutorial/walk-through on retrieving the XML/SOAP from the POST Body and parsing it? MSDN has not been friendly to me today.

2) Is this possible to accomplish without 'code-behind'?

3) Am I even moving in the right direction with the following code?

<%@ Import Namespace="System.IO" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Net" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Text" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Data" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Xml" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Xml.Serialization" %>

	Dim pgRequest  As System.Net.HttpWebRequest
	Dim pgResponse As System.Net.HttpWebResponse
	Dim pgURL = Request.Url

'Log File Setup
	Dim FILENAME as String = "mylog_" & DateTime.Now.ToString("yyyyMMdd") & ".log"
	Dim objFileStream as FileStream
	Dim asyncResult As IAsyncResult
	Dim writeBuffer As Byte()
	Dim logText As String = (DateTime.Now.ToString("yyyyMMdd HHmmss")) & " URL=" & pgURL.ToString

	objFileStream = New FileStream(FILENAME,FileMode.Append,FileAccess.Write,Fileshare.ReadWrite,4096,True)
	Using objStreamWriter As StreamWriter = New StreamWriter(objFileStream)
		writeBuffer = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(logText)
		asyncResult = objFileStream.BeginWrite(writeBuffer,0,writeBuffer.Length,Nothing,Nothing)
	End Using

	Dim input As Stream = HttpContext.Current.Request.InputStream
	Dim reader As StreamReader = New StreamReader(input)

	Dim instance As XmlSerializer
	Dim returnVal As Object = New Object()
	returnVal = instance.Deserialize(input)

Thus, I get lost at the Object portion which is why I am a newbie in need of a tutorial that my Friday afternoon, caffeine deprived brain can comprehend.

Bless anyone who can take pity on me today!
