Yeah, I only ever install perl modules from CPAN. I am not sure what it
complained about, as I didn't do the install. However, it was during
the make test. Some of the tests failed. It could be a problem with
the module itself, or it could be our version of perl. I haven't really
had time to investigate further yet. I am kinda hoping they will just
use sftp and save us some time, but I doubt that will happen. Does
anyone know what the benefits of using FTP with SSL has over sftp? Is
it more secure, less secure? I don't know why you would use it when
sftp is so standard and is secure.
