Can't use CPANPLUS behind a firewall but CPAN works.

Discussion in 'Perl' started by Brian McGonigle, Aug 17, 2004.

  1. I'm trying to use cpanp behind a firewall and I'm not having any luck.
    However, cpan works fine with my proxy configs (I've set http_proxy
    and ftp_proxy in my shell environment). I've tried just host:port and
    http://host:port with no luck. Has anyone run into this problem?

    Thanks,
    Brian

    Can't say I've seen it before - check some tcpdumps on both your
    firewall and the system you're running on cpanp, and see what could be
    dropping.
