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.
ppm> rep Repositories: [ 1] kv [ 2] ActiveState Package Repository [ 3] ActiveState PPM2 Repository [ 4] apache [ 5] theory [ 6] CRAZY [ 7] BRIBE [ 8] perlxml [ 9] crazy58 [10] datetime [11] soulcage58 [12] sablot [13] bribes [14] jenda [15] theory58S [16] esoft [17] theory58 [18] savage [19] openi [20] roth ppm> rep desc 11 Describing Active Repository 11: Name: soulcage58 Location: http://www.soulcage.net/ppds.58/ Type: Webpage ppm> rep desc 15 Describing Active Repository 15: Name: theory58S Location: http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/ppms Type: Webpage ppm>
