Need Help: Server to pass py objects

P: n/a
I have a legacy system with data stored in binary files on a remote server.
I need to access and modify the content of those files from a webserver
running on a different host. (All Linux)

I would like to install a server on the legacy host that would use my python
code to translate between the legacy files and Python Objects that represent
the subset of data I care about, then pass those Python objects back and
forth to my webserver, which would then manage the http I/F to various
clients.

My organization prefers to use open source software.

Can anyone suggest some products to research further?

Fred,
Let me see if i understand, you want to 'serve' binary data as PYTHON
OBJECTS to a REMOTE client.
I am gonna show you how to fish ;)

Search strategy:

PYthon Remote Objects
Python remote
python objects

I tried them and found plenty of information and code.
hint:
PYthon Remote Objects
