Using SSL with Net::FTP on ActivePerl

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

I am writing a script to grab a list of files within a directory.

Net::FTP works great for this, the only thing is my boss wants me to use SSL for transferring the log files. I found out about Net::SFTP on Google but I can't find this when I search Active State's packages. I downloaded it from CPAN but it seems to conflict with Active State's package for SSH.
Is there another way using Active Perl to create a SSL/FTP connection or do I need to walk the chain of tweaking the SFTP files from CPAN to be compatible with Active Perl.
I tried searching archives but was unsuccessful.
Thank you in advance,

[LanX]: you can manipulate a html tree by addressing and replacing so called document objects (DOM) and from my experience the same methods can be used with any XML, though I didn't test all browsers yet
LanX just joking, playing "ego judo"
[marto]: good morning all
[Corion]: Hi marto!
[marto]: the race to the bottom continues, many people lost their job yesterday as a client moves to another outsourcer
[LanX]: brexit or perlxit ?
[Corion]: Ow, marto :-/ I hope you aren't affected (except for the looming dread of more work for the same pay)
[marto]: unrelated
[marto]: Corion, no we're already being g tupe transferred to another employer. This was a banking sector client. They provided a reporting platform using ancient tech
