I have a very similar problem with my CPAN on RedHat 9, that is Net::FTP fails to download from any FTP location (as if the Net::FTP module was broken). So, as soon as CPAN switches to ncftpget, the file gets downloaded properly. I'm afraid I don't know how to disable Net::FTP, but in order to add ncftpget (or ftp) to your FTP downloading alternatives, you should edit the CPAN/ file in your Perl5 installation path (on Linux, this is /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.x.y). The file contains a list of all FTP, HTTP, proxy and other downloading settings. I believe that as soon as you get one of the utilities right (like ftp), downloading off the Internet should work with CPAN.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
