Trouble installing development release

I feel silly posting this - but I’m sure someone will know. I’m trying to
install a development release on the same box as our production release -
only in a different path, and with different database names of course.
Hopefully, installing the required perl mods for 2.1.41 won’t break
2.0.15…

Anyway, I built our RT box on an unprotected network segment for easy access
to CPAN; then moved it to a network segment behind our proxy/firewall. <I
know - that was really silly> Now attempts to pull down perl mods from the
CPAN fail of course.

How can I re-configure CPAN to use our proxy? And / Or - since one of the
modes CPAN can kick into is to use lynx from the command line, where is the
lynx config file that allows one to specify a proxy? I played with lynx a
bit and had no luck.

TIA,

How can I re-configure CPAN to use our proxy?

perl -MCPAN -e shell;

o conf http_proxy your_proxy:port

And / Or - since one of the modes CPAN can kick into is to use lynx from
the command line, where is the lynx config file that allows one to specify a
proxy? I played with lynx a bit and had no luck.

/etc/lynx.cfg

look for http_proxy
