Lucy doesn't really offer a client/server mode. LucyX::Remote is a more or
less experimental feature for clustering and not what you seem to expect. It
requires the full schema and a Lucy library on the client.

I'd suggest to either roll your own search server over HTTP or use a solution
like Dezi which runs on top of Lucy:

Either use a QueryParser with set_heed_colons set to true or create your query
manually using query objects:
