REST API Call from Salesforce to In-House system.

I'm trying to access an external System which is inside my office network. Using the POST method I will try to access the data from that system. For Eg : If i pass the zipcode, I can get the city Name. 

What all are the things i need to consider before making this call to that system apart from the EndPoint. 

Thanks

You'll need to add a remote site setting for your external system.  See here: https://help.salesforce.com/apex/HTViewHelpDoc?id=configuring_remoteproxy.htm&language=en

O
ther than that, just keep in mind that there is a limit of 10 callouts per transaction, and how you need to handle error conditions, etc.
