The networking is fine as I've been downloading and installing packages via yum.
What am I missing here?

[Solved] Perl LWP::Protocol::https install failed via cpanm
Going to on a browser also causes bad request so I looked at t/apache.t and saw it skips the test when there is no network connection so I just stoped the network and installed from the cpan shell instead of cpanm.

Installed successfully.
