|Subject:||Cannot get away with using ftp.exe -n|
CPAN.pm uses ftp.exe -n to fetch data. From what I can tell this just makes it not login. Things were failing and I wasn't sure why, so I tried to use ftp -n directly on the server I got from the round-robin. This connected and then when I tried to get /pub/CPAN/MIRRORED.BY returned the following. 530 Not logged in So apparently one does need to be logged in to pull MIRRORED.BY.
