You could try modifying the CGI tool so that before it does what it is
supposed to do, it returns a redirect page to the browser to send it on
to the other Apache instance.  (I'm presuming that your CGI as currently
configured does not interact with the browser, otherwise you are
effectively attempting to have the browser respond to two servers at
once, which I don't think is possible.)
