When configuring CPAN to utilize a proxy to reach the internet (and the CPAN archive), the connection will fail if NTLM authentication is used by the proxy. Specifically when fetching with LWP: The keep_alive option must be enabled for NTLM authentication to work. NTLM authentication aborted. Perhaps a configuration option could be added to CPAN to enable keep_alive for LWP? Thanks! --Matt Mossholder
