Internal HTTP GET inside ASP page

I have written some ASP COM Objects using Delphi that are able to do what I call an "internal HTTP GET" of some other page (on the same web or not) and then parse the results and do whatever I need with them inside the object itself.

Ok...that I know how to do.

What I am asking is if anyone knows how I could, on the server-side in an ASP page (either JavaScript or VBScript) I could to some HTTP GET of another page, get the results and parse them to do some specific stuff based on the results I get.

For example...I would like to have a database on a remote server that stores some data.  I would like to have a specific CGI or ISAPI program that can retrieve the data and return it in some form to whoever requests it.  I would like an ASP page to be able to call that CGI (via HTTP GET) and parse the results and perhaps display them, or in some way use them for building the resultant page to be sent to the client.

I don't want to have to use a custom binary object (like what I mentioned before about Delphi) to accomplish this...I'd like to have it in the ASP script itself.

Am I crazy?  Is it even possible?

Use ServerXMLHTTP object for server to server communication

--------------------
Dim xmlServerHttp As New Msxml2.serverXmlHttp
xmlServerHttp.open "GET", "http://localhost/sample.xml", False
xmlServerHttp.send
response.write xmlServerHttp.responseText
