You need to look at the curl extension.

// get the page...
$ch = curl_init("http://url/path.html";);
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, 0);
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
$pg = curl_exec ($ch);
curl_close ($ch);

// $pg now contains the source for the page

Then you need to examine the contents of $pg and
look for ways to grab the values you need out of the
string with the ereg* or preg* functions.
