I was able to accomplish the task using the perl API and sending my IP this way.

My working solution:
Convert IP address list to script which adds IP addresses to 'Address List', then upload it via FTP.
If script file name ends with '.auto.rsc', eg. 'filename.auto.rsc' it will be executed automatically after upload,
if not simply execute 'import file-name=your_script.rsc' command.
