POSTing from within a script

POSTing from within a script Can't Post

I am working on a project where a user jumps between two web servers, and my client wants the user to think it is one site.
Hence, I need to pass authentication data between the two servers without the user knowing it.
I want to have a CGI script on Server A that reads some data from a database and then POSTs the data to Server B.
The idea is similiar to simply redirecting the browser from Server A to Server B; the catch is that I want to POST data to Server B without the user seeing it.
Can this be done? Help!

The LWP module allows you to do that. Most likely, you already have it in your Perl distribution, so check out its documentation - type 'perldoc LWP' on your terminal/DOS box, or check out the Online Documentation.

There are some good examples in lwpcook : type 'perldoc lwpcook' or see for more info.

Note that using Server B without informing the end-user may lead to all kinds of copyright problems etc., so make sure you are allowed to do that. If Server B belongs to your client as well, no problem.
