       Dim myHttpWebRequest As HttpWebRequest = CType(WebRequest.Create("http://www.msn.com"), HttpWebRequest)
myHttpWebRequest.Timeout = 1000
       'Get the associated response for the above request.
       Dim myHttpWebResponse As HttpWebResponse = CType(myHttpWebRequest.GetResponse(), HttpWebResponse)

       'Get the headers associated with the response.
       Dim myWebHeaderCollection As WebHeaderCollection = myHttpWebResponse.Headers
       Dim i As Integer
       For i = 0 To myWebHeaderCollection.Count - 1
           Dim header As [String] = myWebHeaderCollection.GetKey(i)
           Dim values As [String]() = myWebHeaderCollection.GetValues(header)
           If values.Length > 0 Then
               Console.WriteLine("The values of {0} header are : ", header)
               Dim j As Integer
               For j = 0 To values.Length - 1
                   Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Tab + "{0}", values(j))
               Next j
               Console.WriteLine("There is no value associated with the header")
           End If
       Next i
