Unable to download modules from Strawberry perl.


I am using Strawberry Perl on WinXP but i am unable to download modules from Cpan via cmd,everytime a connection timeout error pops up.

I get the following error :
C:\>cpan Tk
CPAN: LWP::UserAgent loaded ok (v5.834)
CPAN: Time::HiRes loaded ok (v1.9719)
Fetching with LWP:
LWP failed with code[500] message[Can't connect to cpan.strawberryperl.com:80 (c
onnect: timeout)]
Warning: no success downloading 'C:\strawberry\cpan\sources\authors\01mailrc.txt
.gz.tmp3492'. Giving up on it.
Warning: no success downloading 'C:\strawberry\cpan\sources\authors\01mailrc.txt
.gz.tmp3492'. Giving up on it.
As a last resort we now switch to the external ftp command 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\
to get 'C:\strawberry\cpan\sources\authors\01mailrc.txt.gz.tmp3492'.
Doing so often leads to problems that are hard to diagnose.
If you're the victim of such problems, please consider unsetting the
ftp config variable with
    o conf ftp ""
    o conf commit
Fetching with LWP:

and again a time outSmilie

The modules are availiable at CPAN but from cmd after entering cpan module name a connection is being made to http://cpan.strawberryperl.com/authors/01mailrc.txt.gz Smilie not sure why.

Thanks all in advance,please let me know where i am going wrong.
