I had the same issue. In my case the issue was with "curl". It seems to ignore the $http_proxy variable. To resolve I set "proxy =" in my ~/.curlrc file. Some info on my setup: $ perlbrew --version ~/perl5/bin/perlbrew - App::perlbrew/0.50 $ curl --version curl 7.19.7 (x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu) libcurl/7.19.7 NSS/ zlib/1.2.3 libidn/1.18 libssh2/1.2.2 Protocols: tftp ftp telnet dict ldap ldaps http file https ftps scp sftp Features: GSS-Negotiate IDN IPv6 Largefile NTLM SSL libz $ cat /etc/redhat-release Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.0 (Santiago)
