Please help me!!

Im wondering if anyone can help me with a problem i have with some perl modules.
My problem is:

I'm trying to connect remote host to a unix box from a windows machine. So i'm developing an application to do this.
I'm programming it in perl with tcl/tk Gui interface.
I'm having some trouble with the modules. Firstly i realize there are 2 ways to connect to the unix box. SSH1 and SSH2. I'm having trouble connecting both ways.

For a SSH1 connection i need to install the module Math-GMP?
And for SSH2 connection i need to install the module Math-Pari?

When i try to connect with SSH1, i get the error:
Can't locate Math/ in @INC (@INC contains:
And with SSH2 i get:
Can't locate Math/

For SSH2, i downloaded the pari-2.3.4.tar.gz, extracted to C:\

Then in Math-Pari, within the i pointed to
$paridir = "c:/pari-2.1.7";

But i still get an error here. The SSH2 way of connecting seems overcomplicated.

So i went back to SSH1, but i cannot find the location of GMP that works with SSH1.
I went to a website
and i downloaded gmp-4.2.4.tar.bz2, But i don't know how to install this on windows. I don't think i can.

ppm will not work for me. I'm using Perl Version : v5.10.0

So as you can see, i'm stuck, can anyone please assist me on what i should do next.
Thank you,

If you have 64bit ActivePerl there is no GUI, but PPM will work for all versions of ActivePerl 5.10.

The two modules you are looking for are available here:
