1. Install Net::SSLeay Perl module from the package delivered by the vendor of your OS or download it from

2. Check if the module is in Perl module include path: perl -e 'use NET::SSLeay;' && echo $? (success if 0 returned).

3. If you installed the module in a non-standard path, modify to instruct Perl what is your non-standard module path, e.g.:
use lib '/my/perl/module/path';

$> perl -MCPAN -e shell
perl>install Net::SSLeay

that should tell you if its already 'there' and if not pull it down from your preferred mirrors.

Hope that helps
