Problems with SSLeay

dwatson06 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I'm having problems setting up SSLeay on a Windows box. First of all, the SSLeay requires OpenSSL installed. The OpenSSL documentation says I need to install VC++, A gnu compiler or Cygwin to compile OpenSSL. Then there is a referrencing problem in Cygwin... Is there a shorter way to use SSL through my perl script? On the Windows box, there is a Verisign encryption key, does anyone know if/how I could route through it or any other options would be greatly appreciated.

    Assuming you're using ActivePerl, is there some reason you cannot use the precompiled PPD from ActiveState?

    ppm install Crypt-SSLeay
