    Three possibilities:
    • I assume you are behind a proxy. Try to set the HTTP_proxy, HTTP_proxy_user and HTTP_proxy_pass environment variables. Then use ppm again:
      $ set http_proxy=http://xxx.xxx.xxx.x:yyyy $ set http_proxy_user=username $ set http_proxy_pass=password

      where x is the ip-address of the proxy, and y the port.

    • Surf to the repository and download the PPD-file. Open it with a text-editor. Identify the line that says <CODEBASE HREF="x86/Convert-ASN1-0.14-PPM.tar.gz" />. Download that tar.gz-file. Put both files in a directory, the tarball must be saved relative to the ppd as stated in the ppd (here ./x86). Add that directory as a repository to ppm.
      ppm> rep add local /path/to/ppd
      Then install the module with ppm.

    • Download only the tarball, extract it and copy the files to appropriate places in the perl library tree.


    Here are the locations of the repositories. I forgot them last night. The list is different, because I am at work now.
