Connection error in ppm

Hello

I am using activeperl for a while now and it works perfectly, but the PPM doesn't. When I try to search for a package or try to install one, it gives me:

ppm> install net::irc
Error: No valid repositories:
Error: 500 Can't connect to 127.0.0.1:4001 (connect: Unknown error)
Error: 500 Can't connect to 127.0.0.1:4001 (connect: Unknown error)

Also, the GUI only shows me my installed packages and no new ones. Can somebody please help me out? Thanks in advance,

Iron

EDIT: sorry, problem is already fixed, my http proxy for connection was set in register. If other users have this problem, create a .bat file containing:
SET HTTP_proxy=
and this should fix it.

The relevant bits in the ActivePerl documentation are here ( aspn.activestate.com ).
