ppm.activestate.com down? - PERL Modules

just trying to install perl in my WinXP computer, trying to install some modules using PP3 and it gives me an error that it can't reach ppm.activestate.com. Tried pinging it... nothing. Tried going to it with Firefox... nothing. Is it down? Is it permanently down? Is there an alternative?...

    Default ppm.activestate.com down?

    just trying to install perl in my WinXP computer, trying to install
    some modules using PP3 and it gives me an error that it can't reach
    ppm.activestate.com. Tried pinging it... nothing. Tried going to it

    Is it down? Is it permanently down? Is there an alternative?

    It doesn't seem to be down - it's working fine for me. Try entering:

    ppm rep

    That should give you something like:

    [x] ActiveState Package Repository

    where x is probably 1, but not necessarily.

    Then try:

    ppm rep describe x

    (substituting the actual value for "x"). That should tell you the actual
    location of the repository. For me, I get:

    D:\pscrpt>ppm rep describe 1
    Describing Active Repository 1:
    Name: ActiveState Package Repository
    Location:
    [url]http://ppm.ActiveState.com/PPM/ppmserver-5.8-windows.plex?urn:/PPM/Server/SQL[/url]
    Type: PPMServer 3.0

    Is that what you get ?

    There can be problems with ppm wrt firewalls and proxy servers.
    If that's possibly what's giving you the problem, browse to your
    Perl/html/faq/ActivePerl-faq2.html#ppm_and_proxies doentation.

    There are also some other useful repositories - notably:
    [url]http://www.bribes.org/perl/ppmdir.html[/url]
    [url]http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/ppms/[/url]
    [url]http://crazyinsomniac.perlmonk.org/perl/ppm/5.8/[/url]

    Cheers,
