Subject: [Dxspider-support] Can't find ActiveState Perl modules

I'm having trouble satisfying the Perl requirements for running DX
Spider.  The installation instructions on the Wiki page say:

Additional packages


Just type:

ppm install net-telnet
ppm install timedate
ppm install db_file

I'm running: perl, v5.8.8 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread
(with 18 registered patches, see perl -V for more detail)

Copyright 1987-2007, Larry Wall

Binary build 822 [280952] provided by ActiveState http://www.ActiveState.com
Built Jul 31 2007 19:34:48

I can't find those packages:

ppm install failed: Can't find any package that provide net-telnet
ppm install failed: Can't find any package that provide timedate
ppm install failed: Can't find any package that provide db_file

I then tried the ppm gui.  It's pointing to http://ppm4.activestate.com
but that says no packages are available.

I went to the section of the ActiveState web site where you can download


But there's no net-telnet listed here:


What am I doing wrong?
