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

Hi All, I haven't had much luck finding (or compiling myself) a PPM for Net-SSH2 on Windows with ActiveState 5.14. Does anyone have a link to a pre-built PPM, or some suggestions based off of your own adventure in compiling this? Thanks

    I have not tried installing that particular module from CPAN myself, but I have found it to be fairly easy to install modules directly from CPAN into ActivePerl.

    Here's the steps:

    • Use PPM to install mingw and dmake, which are available from the default ActiveState repository.
    • If your system is behind a proxy, you'll need to add the http_proxy environment variable with the correct information to you Windows OS.
    • Now, from a command prompt, you can install modules directly from CPAN by using syntax like cpan install Net::SSH2

    Of course, it does look like that module you're interested in does require the libssh2 library to be installed first. Since I have not been through that process myself, I can't offer any pointers on how to get that library installed properly.

    If you're not strictly tied to using ActivePerl 5.14, Strawberry Perl 5.12.3.0 does have a version of Net::SSH2 already included, which was mentioned in another response. Also, Strawberry Perl does have a preview release of 5.14. I'm assuming that Net::SSH2 would be included, but can't say for sure.

    From what you have written i could understand that you are not able to install the perl module Net::SSH2 in AcivePerl if that's the case simply open your comamd prompt and type  ppm install Net::SSH2 and hit enter..

      Thanks, Installed Net::SSH2 successfully with ppm install http://www.sisyphusion.tk/ppm/Net-SSH2.ppd command.
