SamCG has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Not sure what to make of this error or how to go about troubleshooting it... using strawberry perl portablezip edition on a Virtual machine, so I'm not sure if that's what's causing this... Note that because I used -e on a windows cmd line I need to escape the double-quotes.
I:\perl>perl -e "use WWW::Mechanize;$mech=WWW::Mechanize->new() or die + \"Cannot create mech: $!\n\";$mech->get('') or +die \"Cannot get: $!\";$page=$mech->content();print $page;" Error GETing Can't connect to + (Bad host name) at -e line 1.

    DNS or internetz not working?

      No, those are all working fine, at least when I open up IE (not my personal browser choice, but meh).

        IE configured to use a proxy or something?
