My client send GET request to server, server returns Set-cookie: blah blah how do I send a decline or accept back to server so I can get the page I wanted?

It should be returning both the page and the cookie. If it's not yet returning the page, it's probably wanting you to remember the cookie, and "click another link".

The LWP package can hold "cookie jars" to automatically send back previously noted cookies. See perldoc lwpcook after installing LWP.
