in reply to PPM please!!

Hi Billy, I'm using AP as well, but the ppm is trying to connecdt to the modlue repository you have chosen, so please read the the ActivePerlDoc, e.g. "..Perl\html\faq\ActivePerl-faq2.html" for detailed information, especially the section about proxies and firewalls. So the reason seems simply to be, that ppm is looking for the modules in a different location than you do.
so try following:
PPM>install \location DIR PACKAGE
where "DIR" specifies the directory on your system, but instead of givibg this "DIR" you can also pass an URL here.
to read more, use "PPM>help install"
So far ..

    Hi thanks for the reply.
    I have tried what you suggested but it still does not seem to work. What I did was:

    PPM>install --location= Net-Daemon.ppd

    and also


    Does it work when you execute this command?
    I think I will have a read of the perlmonth article pointed out by Ugly below!
