    Hi, I have a database server with dynamic IP and need to send the new IP every so often to the web server so it can connect to it. Now i know i could do this with mail but id like to know if it could be done by sending out a form directly with perl from where the database server is (LWP maybe?).

    If the database server runs on the same machine as the web server, you should be able to connect to it via the localhost IP# 127.0.0.1
