I'm running NT4, and I just checked with PPM and I don't show Net-Daemon, either. I did, however, find a link that will let you download the file directly. Try this link, and download the .zip of the package that you're looking for. I went ahead and got Net-Daemon.zip, which includes source and a .ppd file.
According to the readme, you should be able to just enter "ppm install Net-Daemon.ppd", but it doesn't work on my system. It complains of not being able to find a binary for my platform.

Update: After some investigating, this is what I discovered: the link above takes you directly to the 5.005 download directory, the contents of which PPM won't install into ActivePerl 5.6. There is another directory at http://www.activestate.com/PPMPackages/5.6/ that contains everything that doing a search under PPM will show you. Net-Daemon does not exist in this directory, so I couldn't test if it would install correctly. Netscape-History does exist in both locations, so I tried it:
  • From 5.005 directory: install failed complaining about no binary found, etc.
  • From 5.6 directory: installed, no problems.
The only thing I can conclude is that PPM does some version checking, and that if you really want packages that don't show up in the 5.6 directory, you'll have to get them from CPAN instead.
