Installing The Net-SNMP Perl Module on Windows

There are restrictions on the crypt-des.ppd module that make it a rare beastie to find. When you try and install via ppm:

ppm> install net-snmp
Error: PPD for 'Crypt-DES.ppd' could not be found.

After some searching, we did find the module at soulcage.net. The site seems legit, but do your own homework. To add the 5.8 repository, use the rep (repository) command:

ppm> rep add soulcage http://www.soulcage.net/ppds/PPDS.58/
Repositories:
[1] ActiveState PPM2 Repository
[2] ActiveState Package Repository
[3] soulcage

Now, net-snmp can be installed without error:

ppm> install net-snmp
