( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Maybe, I missed a point or two ...

At my work environment, I've pretty much the same conditions -- i.e. restrictive firewall and an authenticating proxy, which allows only "browser ftp".

After reading this very thread, I've tweaked Config.pm (That's down in $YourPerlModulesAreHere/5.8.x/CPAN). When I set ftp_proxy to the same value as http_proxy and put the credentials in the URL, a little happy LWP goes going.

Here a snippet from Config.pm:

$CPAN::Config = { # more stuff here ... 'ftp_proxy' => q[http://user:passwd@server:port], 'http_proxy' => q[http://user:passwd@server:port], # ... and here also }

I hope, anyone -- beside myself -- can made some good use of it.
