Something like this:

#!/usr/bin/perl

use strict;

use HTML::Form;
use LWP;

my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new();

my $url = 'http://your.server.xxx'; #
my $login_req = HTTP::Request->new(GET => $url);
my $login_res = $ua->request($login_req);
my $html = $login_res->content;

my $form = HTML::Form->parse($html,$url);
$form->value('login','yourlogin');
$form->value('password','yourpass');
$form->value('action','login');
my $req = $form->click;

my $res = $ua->request($req);
