Hi CHuck,

again, I am seriously believe that something in your network setup 
is broken. It seems that the proxy needs some login, or whatever.

> cannot contact mirror.ctan.org, returning a backbone server!

First of all, this is *strange*. It means that you cannot connect.

So my guess is the following:

Your proxy allows only a certain set of "User Agents" - that means
that a User Agent of LWP or so is blocked. That would explain

If you have
installed, can you try
	lwp-download http://mirror.ctan.org
and send the output of it, probably saved into "index" named file.
