I have had a similar problem. It's due to the somewhat broken File Transfer Protocol. If you set the environment variable FTP_PASSIVE to 1 and then run cpan things should work better for you. In the bash shell this looks like:
export FTP_PASSIVE=1 perl -MCPAN -e shell

    In bash and zsh (and probably most other shells), you can also set the environment variable on a per-process basis like this:

    $ FTP_PASSIVE=1 perl -MCPAN -e shell
