PPM through Proxy (Activeperl / Activestate)

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View

hi, i have just installed the latest Activeperl from activestate.com
and need to add some modules through PPM. I am behind a firewall and
forced to go through a proxy (IE Settings are Automatic Proxy
Configuration URL (something like http://server.domain.com/proxy.pac ).

I am unable to install package through PPM surely because of this proxy
problem, how can I tell PPM to use the PROXY settings in IE or define
proxy URL manually in PPM?

ppm> install Net::Telnet
Error: No valid repositories:
Error: 500 Can't connect to ppm.ActiveState.com:80 (connect: Unknown
Error: 500 Can't connect to ppm.ActiveState.com:80 (connect: Unknown

thanks in advance.

Open C:/Perl/html/faq/ActivePerl-faq2.html#ppm_and_proxies in your browser
and follow the instructions. (You might have to modify that link, depending
upon precisely where you have installed your ActiveState perl.)

ActiveState have had some trouble with their ppm rep just recently  - though
everything seems fine with it at the moment. Try again, anyway - just in
case the problem was simply that they were down.
