    yes, i tried both commands:
    C:\Users\me>ppm install
    ppm install failed: 500 Can't connect to (10061)

    C:\Users\me>ppm install DBD-mysql
    ppm install failed: Can't find any package that provides DBD-mysql

      Can you ping

      C:\>ping /n 1 Pinging [] with 32 bytes of data: Reply from bytes=32 time=146ms TTL=44 Ping statistics for Packets: Sent = 1, Received = 1, Lost = 0 (0% loss), Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds: Minimum = 146ms, Maximum = 146ms, Average = 146ms

      I can also reach port 80 and load the page in browser.

      C:\>nmap -p80 Starting Nmap 6.25 ( ) at 2014-06-20 14:13 Pacific Day +light Time Nmap scan report for ( Host is up (0.034s latency). rDNS record for PORT STATE SERVICE 80/tcp open http Nmap done: 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 0.46 seconds

      I can also hit it with ppm.

      C:\>ppm install Installing package ''... Error installing package ' +': Read a PPD for ' DBD-mysql.ppd', but it is not intended for this build of Perl (MSWin32 +-x86-multi-thread-64int-5.18)
        so I tried to do this from my home machine where I am using activestate perl 5.12.4 on win7-64 and I get the following errors:
        C:\Users\Darryll>ppm install DBD-mysql Downloading DBD-mysql-4.022...redirect Downloading DBD-mysql-4.022...failed 401 Authorization Required ppm install failed: 401 Authorization Required C:\Users\Darryll>ppm install +ppd ppm install failed: The PPD does not provide code to install for this +platform
        would it be possible for someone to send me all the installed files from the DBD-mysql installation so that I can use them? I have already gone down the activestate perl 5.16 path in my development and this is the last module that I need to get working. it would be a lot of work to switch to another database driver or another version of perl.
