You need to enable an HTTP Proxy. PPM relies on LWP (I think) and, at any rate, will look for the environment variable HTTP_proxy to determine what proxy to use if any. So you'll need to set that environment variable, using either the set command in your command window or using the Control Panel -> System settings. The exact value you need you'll have to obtain from your university's IT people as mentioned by shmem.

[marioroy]: Net type modules are likely not multi-process safe unless stated in the documentation.
[marioroy]: The Prima author fixed his module to be both thread and multi-process safe. Thanks Dmitry.
[marioroy]: Of all the GUI-type modules, Prima was the worst regarding thread/multi- process safety. Now, it's the best for safety. ;-)
[marioroy]: Tk, Gtk2, Gtk3 requires extra care.
