Morgon, my machine is behind a proxy so it is not fetching Modules from CPAN.org, can you tell how to configure cpan to go through a proxy, its for my future use. I belive i need to configure the following details Proxy IP & Port, Domain name, username and password.

    You can check the documentation of the CPAN-module with "perldoc CPAN".

    It uses some configuration variables that you can set (at the shell-prompt) with "o conf <variable> <value>".

    After you've made changes you need to commit them with "o conf commit".

    To use a proxy (I think) you need to set the variables "http_proxy" (maybe also "ftp_proxy") and possibly (if you have to authenticate at the proxy) "proxy_user" and "poxy_pass".

    So try (at the prompt you get with "perl -MCPAN -e shell"

    o conf http_proxy <your proxy> o conf http_user <your proxy-user> o conf http_pass <your proxy-password> o conf commit

    and it should work.
