Help with CPAN failingby astaines (Curate)
|on Apr 20, 2003 at 21:37 UTC||Need Help??|
astaines has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I've been banging my head against this problem for two days, with no joy, perhaps someone else can help?
All the components work individually, for example I can get files with ftp and libwww (lwpget) from the CPAN mirrors, but when running the CPAN shell, I can't retrieve any files. Pulling the MIRRORED.BY file over manually allowed me to complete the initial CPAN setup successfully, but I still can't retrieve any files. The LWP access mode just fails with no error message, and the ftp access mode fails at the RETR command, with error 400 and response code 425 from the server
FTP Error- 425
This error message is coming from all of the mirror sites in MyConfig.pm. The CPAN shell works fine on the same machine running Windows 2000. All the other internet services seem to be running normally. I use this machine from home over a modem line, so there shouldn't be any odd firewall stuff going on.
Any thoughts?? (Help!!)--
