My version of perl is Active Perl 5.8 for Windows. I'm making use of the LWP module to make HTTP connections and have been occassionally receiving the following error message:
500 (Internal Server Error) Can't connect to 184.108.40.206:8000 (connect: Unknown error)
What I'm trying to do is to connect to a website through a proxy using the commands:
The error message is being caused exclusively by the proxy. After receving the error message from within my script I immediately test the proxy within Internet Explorer -- the proxy runs fine.
What must i do to get LWP to handle proxy properly, and consistently? It seems that LWP isn't interpretting the proxy name properly leading to the internal error?!?
