Display new posts from another forum?

I own two forums hosted on two different servers. I'm trying to make them sister sites and I would like a way to show a quick preview of new posts on the sister forum. IOW, I want a page on forum A to show the activity stream (or new posts)from forum B.

I was able to get it to work with an RSS feed, but the problem is that it created a new post on forum A every time there was a new thread on forum B.

Any ideas?
Thanks

RSS Feeds show new Threads, not new Posts.

See these threads for methods to pull threads via javascript:
[HowTo] Display your latest threads on an external page using an RSS2 feed
[HowTo] Display your latest threads on an external page using an XML feed
[HowTo] Display your latest threads on an external page using an RSS feed

To get new Posts, you will need to actually write some code to connect to the database on the other server. Usually, if the server is set up correctly, it will not allow an outside connection.
