Subject: NTLM proxy authentication in CPAN
Date: Tue, 23 Apr 2013 16:06:07 -0400
To: bug-CPAN@rt.cpan.org
From: Matt Mossholder <matt@mossholder.com>
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!
