My exact case :

When  a site user tries to register , he uploads a word file ( his CV).
Then  this word  file is processed to extract some data from it ..

This is working fine till now.
But what I want , Is , after he click submit the  registration form, his  data sent to the server will have some processing and some data to be inserted in the DB , and to open a connection with another  server to send the uploaded file to it , to be processed on the second server and then send me the reply as XML file .. to be processed again on  my original file..

What  are the suggestions for doing that ?
Reason:  My original server is running on Linux , And I the file processing to be on windows to be able to use the COM class which is only available on the windows version of PHP.
And I don't prefer to transfer my site to a windows hosting due to security reasons.

Any help?
