for very low bandwidth IPC I'd just use a standard web page form using a GET... so all you have to do is call a URL with the parameters embedded in the URL, e.g.

If your bandwidth requirements are a bit higher then you have to start using POST which is a bit more complicated though... so at that stage I might use SOAP.
