I am trying to install Bundle::LWP via the CPAN shell on a new RH box. All the modules will install via CPAN except libwww-perl-5.826. I am getting the following error (the IP has been changed for obvious reasons):
# perl Makefile.PL
Can't connect: IO::Socket::INET: Bad hostname 'http://999.99.999.9:570
Test server timeout
The can-we-talk-to-ourself test failed.
Writing Makefile for LWP
I am assuming that is a port number being appended to the IP address considered as a bad hostname. If so, what config file do I need to change to correct this problem?
I have edited the /etc/hosts file to include the correct name and IP. The name in /etc/hosts does match the system environment variable HOSTNAME. What am I missing?
