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.

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
