For a pure Python solution have a look at Pyro;
I think this will give you the easiest solution. But it only works
in a pure Python system.

If you need to call non-Python programs, you might want to investigate:

- pure TCP/IP or Unix domain socket communication (see socket module)
- XML RPC (see xmlrpclib module)
- SOAP ( see SOAP module from PyGoogle project)
- CORBA ( see )
- shared memory ( see the shm module )

PS perhaps QT also provide some form of IPC by itself?
