If you can make Net::Pcap connect to a remote server things will work
fine, I am not sure about using Net::Pcap to do this as I never used
it and from the description it seems to be a packet capture lib not so
much a communication one, but as I said if you can make it reach out
and talk to the other side you should be fine.
I think you will end up using somehting like Net::SSH or something
like that as these are more aimed at communication then Net::Pcap
seems to be.
But in the end as long as the other side is listening on a port and
you can produce the required packets to get communication going you
should be fine, there is no need to have perl, or any perl libs on the
other side all that is needed is an open port that you can communicate
The thing that is listening on that port is what determins what you
can do, read email, open and interact with files or just browse a web
page, perl on your machine cannot change which process is listening on
the other machine.
In short I guess you can if the other machine is listening, but you
might want to use a more suitable lib for it.

say I have big wireshark file based on remote server.
I want to logon to that server and using Net::Pcap to poke the
file and only grep out small portion of information which meets my
Remote server won't have Net::Pcap installed.
I wanted to write this program w/ Expect modules and Net::Pcap
module in my mind.
But since these things are only located in my local server, will
this work on remote server?

local server(w/ Perl installed) -------------------> remote server(with
Pcap file I am interested in poking around)
if I launch a perl script from my local server(using say Net::SSH) and
logs onto remote server, my perl can poke around that file on remote server
using Net::Pcap.... ? So essentially in order to do this, I need to use
2 modules(to logon, and then parsing out the pcap file)
I am thinking about writing this but just not sure if it will work on
