problem getting ddclient (dyndns) to work in CentOS


guys, I'm trying to install ddclient from dyndns in my CentOS server but for some reason is not updating the host name at the server with the correct ip. I wonder if Centos has perl installed because the ddclient is a perl script....

thanks

this is the message I'm getting in my logs

Code:
FATAL:    Error loading the Perl module IO::Socket::SSL needed for SSL connect.
FATAL:     On Debian, the package libio-socket-ssl-perl must be installed.

well, it seems that perl comes preinstalled in Centos

Code:
Setting up Install Process
Parsing package install arguments
Package 4:perl-5.8.8-18.el5_3.1.i386 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do

CPAN is the world-wide archive of perl resources. It consists of about
300 sites that all replicate the same contents around the globe. Many
countries have at least one CPAN site already. The resources found on
CPAN are easily accessible with the CPAN.pm module. If you want to use
CPAN.pm, lots of things have to be configured. Fortunately, most of
them can be determined automatically. If you prefer the automatic
configuration, answer 'yes' below.

If you prefer to enter a dialog instead, you can answer 'no' to this
question and I'll let you configure in sma.......
