I was asked by my team to install the SNMP Perl module on our installation. When I try and install it (ppm install SNMP) it doesn't seem to know about the existence of the module:
ppm install failed: Can't find any package that provides SNMP

I do see it in CPAN:

Does PPM not support SNMP? If so, should I just install via CPAN instead?

They can build Net-SNMP
but they do not have Net-SNMP installed, so they can't build SNMP.

Using the cpan script would be an option, if you already have dependencies like Net-SNMP installed.
