CPAN

I am using a stock RH9 box and need to download some CPAN Perl Modules.

I chose ftp.demon.co.uk but it just times out
(yes I have opented ports 20 and 21!)

Which CPAN server would you recommend?

Which file do I change this in?

Is there any way of doing this without ftp or with passive ftp?

TIA

Simon

Have you run 'perl -MCPAN -eshell' ?

>Is there any way of doing this without ftp or with passive ftp?

Yes, just download the module source from the CPAN archive and 
compile/install it.

Not so much a server recommendation (although I tend to list mirror.ac.uk 
as my first choice) but rather a recommendation that you use the HTTP 
servers if FTP is blocked by your firewall.

One way would be to go through the original setup menu, which should
have run the first time you ran the cpan shell. While you're in the cpan
shell, type "o conf init".

You could also edit the list through "o conf urllist", or editing cpan's
Config.pm directly. (You can find this file through locate(1)). I
haven't tried the latter, so maybe that won't work. 

> Is there any way of doing this without ftp or with passive ftp?

To use passive ftp, you can set FTP_PASSIVE=1. Net::FTP will see and
use the variable as approporiate.

Very good advice - wish I'd had it before making too many mistakes in 
bookshops! Even if you want a hard copy, it's worth browsing around 
online to get tasters and an idea of what you want.

I suggest RUTE, more as reference material than a how-to. Available 
both as download and trad book.

Under attack ...


I'm getting about 10 spams an hour. 1800 lines of worm/virus with
subject lines like "Undeliverable message", "Latest Microsoft upgrade",
etc.

Does anyone know what particular MS worm this is?

Been getting those for weeks.  About 2Mb a day.  Mine are..  

Nov  2 21:52:28 amavis[15770]: (15770-04) INFECTED 
(Worm/Gibe.C.1), 

I'm running Amavis and Postfix with Pysor and DCC checking on 
Spadderassassin and some other things.  As soon as another one arrives 
it gets mailed straight back out.  Quite a lot of Microsoft Upgrade 
packs out there just now :)

Soon be Christmas.  Wonder how good that's going to be :)
