Use the LWP module to make a HTTP request of your own, and use CGI to
thunk each of form1.pl's parameters into form2.pl. You will want
to put something like this in your first script (UNTESTED):

use CGI qw(:common);
use LWP::UserAgent;
use HTTP::Request::Common qw(POST);

$query = new CGI;

# ... (do stuff) ...

# make a new request to form2.pl
$ua = LWP::UserAgent->new;
my $req = POST 'http://www.anotherdomain.com/cgi-bin/form2.pl',
	[ map { $_ => param($_) } $query->param() ]; # thunks ALL parameters!

$res = $ua->request($req); # $res now has the output from form2.pl's
