I would take a look at modules that use external APIs such as
Flickr[1] for pointers. Essentially wha you're doing is stripping down
the ASP output to a web service ( plain text, xml or even JSON ) and
then implementing a server-side-proxy for that data in Drupal. Make
sure you use curl instead of fopen as it is much faster.
