When I run perl -MCPAN -e shell from the command line I get "no route to host" message. This box has public internet access as everything else works, so I know that error message is not correct. I looked in my firewall log file and I see that at the time I was doing -MCPAN, I have an inbound port 21 packets that I deny and log. I do not allow remote ftp access to my system as I do not have an ftp server.
Now question is, Is perl -MCPAN process in some way causing this to occur, and if so how do I tell the perl -MCPAN process to use outbound ftp passive mode? I all ready issued this command from the command line setenv FTP_PASSIVE "1" Thanks for your help _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
