Forcing CPAN to ncftp??

    Is there a way to prevent CPAN from using any method except ncftp??

    I've got ncftp working through our firewall, but have consistent troubles
    with Net::FTP and LWP. However, CPAN always starts out trying LWP, then
    Net::FTP, then . . . .

    'o conf' output doesn't show any specific variables related to either LWP or
    Net::FTP. Other methods (wget, lynx) are off in the configuration.

    Perl 5.8.4 on Solaris

    Thanks!

    Dan
