Subject: use LWP/proxy to check Internet access
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 601b
Module::Signature uses Socket to try whether a connection to a keyserver is possible. This is IMHO not a good way for all those that have Internet access via a proxy (and not a direct one); gpg and LWP work fine with a proxy (and honor the http_proxy environment), so I'd like to see support for that in Module::Signature as well: something like (partially pseudo-code, sorry): if($ENV{http_proxy}) { require LWP; # use LWP to check whether keyserver is accessible if($CanConnect) { $gpg_opt .= '--keyserver-options=auto-key-retrieve,honor-http- proxy'; } } Thanks & best regards, Marek
