perl modules
 
When I tried installing the following:

NET::FTP
IO::File
HTTP::Request
HTTP::Response
LWP::UserAgent

IT somehow need an ftp access, but I do have restrictions on my network, is there a way that i can install it withough having to access any ftp server.

thats what I get when trying installing it.
Code:


If you're accessing the net via proxies, you can specify them in the
CPAN configuration or via environment variables. The variable in
the $CPAN::Config takes precedence.

Your ftp_proxy?
Your http_proxy? 
Your no_proxy?

After that it cant access any ftp:
Code:

You have no /root/.cpan/sources/MIRRORED.BY
  I'm trying to fetch one
LWP not available
CPAN: Net::FTP loaded ok
Fetching with Net::FTP:
  ftp://ftp.perl.org/pub/CPAN/MIRRORED.BY

Thanks.

I don't know anything about what you're installing but if it requires FTP access as a main part of its functionality and you have restrictions I'd question the usefulness of the app overall. My guess is that you have a proxy in place and that you don't necessarily know how to get over it. I'd suggest you 1st figure out the uid/pwd for clearing the proxy (if it authenticates) then try to set the variable in $CPAN::Config as the message says. Sorry I can't be of much more help with Perl but I do know how to clear proxies as that's an issue I deal with everyday.

I dont understand what does this means!
Code:

clearing the proxy (if it authenticates)

Code:

then try to set the variable in $CPAN::Config
as the message says. Sorry I can't be of much more
help with Perl but I do know how to clear proxies as
that's an issue I deal with everyday.

Can you please show me how to do that?

Thanks for your time.

What about installing the modules manually? Goto search.cpan.org and search for each module. Download the tarball, untar and run perl Makefile.PL && make && make install.

Hope this helps
