WWW::Mechanize can't GET; no helpful error message comes back

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('http://www.google.com') or +die \"Cannot get: $!\";$page=$mech->content();print $page;" Error GETing http://www.google.com: Can't connect to www.google.com:80 + (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?
