    If that's the case, the only other thing I can think of is
    $ua->no_proxy();
      That doesn't help either if the OP is behind a firewall and needs to use a proxy.

    Likely it is. Ugh, now I have to remember how to figure out how to get around that... hmmm...

    it worked for me doing this:
    use WWW::Mechanize; my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new(); $mech->get ('http://google.com'); my $content = $mech->content; print $content;
    I don't think it is necessary to put the 'or die "Can't create mech" part? Also,I have a brief tutorial that I have requested for comment using WWW::Mechanize that is in the meditations section
      That doesn't fix anything if a proxy is involved. See the LWP::UserAgent proxy() and env_proxy() methods.
