[CentOS] perl-Net-SCP on Centos 7

2015-08-24 Thread Gary Stainburn
As part of building my new mail server, I'm installing the RPMS to match my old server. However, I can't find a perl-Net-SCP RPM for this version. Can someone point me to where I can get it, preferrably a repo that I can use that has it. I have found perl-Net-SCP-0.08-1.el6.rf.noarch.rpm.
