Another option, assuming you've got a working SSH connection between the machines is to use Net::SSH::Perl.
Note: Cpan search seems to be having issues at the moment so here's an alternative location - Net::SSH::Perl.

sub run_remote_script { use Net::SSH::Perl; my ($host,$user,$pass,$opt1,$opt2,$opt3) = @_; my $cmd = "/path/to/remote_script $opt1 $opt2 $opt3"; my $ssh = Net::SSH::Perl->new($host); $ssh->login($user,$pass); my %output; ($output{stdout},$output{stderr},$output{exit}) = $ssh->cmd($cmd); return \%output; }

If you want to get the output from another script, it's as simple as using LWP::Simple. See How can I load a webpage into my program?. That assumes that the script on another server is CGI and available through HTTP access.

If you're looking to execute a script through rsh or ssh or telnet, look for the Expect module. You can write something like a chat script with it.

If you can establish an automatic ssh connection with the server, use GRID::Machine

It sounds like you're just asking about invoking a remote script as you might through a web browser (as opposed to a particular procedure). But just in case you were asking about RPC: How can I do RPC in Perl?.

my $tn; # Telnet connection initilized sub TNcommand { my($command) = $_[0]; &RunLog (" : Running command = $command"); $tn->cmd(String => $command, Prompt => '/\>$/'); return; } sub TNprint { my($command) = $_[0]; &RunLog (" : Running print command = $command"); $tn->print("$command"); return; } sub TNwriteFile { my($out_fname) = $_[0]; my($NextLine) = "1"; open (SAIDA, ">$out_fname"); while ($NextLine) { if ($NextLine = $tn->getline(Timeout => 15)) { $NextLine =~ s/\r//; print SAIDA $NextLine; } } close SAIDA; return; }
