Hi all,

I'm trying to sync ppm with ActiveState repository on a fresh install of ActivePerl.

> ppm repo sync
Downloading ActiveState Package Repository packlist...done

I can retrieve package.xml completely using Firefox.
Running Windows 7 Ultimate, ActivePerl 5.12.2

I'd appreciate any idea/help.

Thanks,
