The way that I usually do this is to make the script on the other server web-accessible; that is, make it a Perl/CGI script on the other server.  This script should make sure that it only accepts your new script as the "HTTP_REFERER", meaning that nobody else can call your script from their web pages.

Next, in the new script that you're writing, you'll need to use the LWP module, something like this:

use strict;
use LWP::Simple;

my $html = get('http://192.168.1.1/cgi-bin/your_script.cgi');

Any value returned from the script will be stored in the $html scalar (variable).
