can you use lwp instead of sockets, it has more overhead, but I can show you how to do it :)

This should do the trick. Taken from
perldoc perlipc

use IO::Socket;
$host = 'www.yourserver.com';
$port = 80;
$EOL = "\015\012";
$BLANK = $EOL x 2;
$remote = IO::Socket::INET->new( Proto     => "tcp",
                                 PeerAddr  => $host,
                                 PeerPort  => $port,
                               ) or die $!; # This is probably enough of a check if the server is up.
$remote->autoflush(1);
print $remote "HEAD / HTTP/1.0" . $BLANK; # Could also be GET
while ( <$remote> ) { print }
close $remote;
