CPAN module install?

 CPAN module install?

Hey people,

After advice to not manually install each of the modules required for LWP
and instead use the automated CPAN module to install LWP, I tried it, and
this is what happened. Is it just me or is there something wrong with the
installation, or is it the FTP part? Coz I ftped to ftp.perl.org manually,
and tried to ftp some of those gz files to test it and all I got were
"Illegal PORT command."s anyway. Can anyone help me out here? Thanks a
bunch for any help.
