    You did not save your configuration. Before leaving the CPAN shell, you need the

    o conf commit

    command. Just like the posts instructed you.

      Still getting the following even after the o conf commit
      Fetching with Net::FTP: ftp://ftp.perl.org/pub/CPAN/MIRRORED.BY
      # perl -MCPAN -e 'shell'
      Tip for the technically less experienced people: the quotes are unnecessary on all platforms that I know off, so to avoid portability problems, it may be better to drop them:
      perl -MCPAN -e shell
