Sorry, but I'm a bit unclear exactly what you mean. What's the difference between a location and and IP address?
What protocol are you going to be speaking across the link? There are high-level Perl modules for most popular protocol (HTTP, FTP, NNTP, etc) and if you're using your own protocol then I recommend writing your own module wrapper using something like IO::Socket.
