Please do. I'm getting "connection refused" (so I assume the server is down)

I have the version that comes standard with Debian stable. Here's the
Module id = Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication
    DESCRIPTION  Authentication support for Catalyst
    CPAN_USERID  NUFFIN (Yuval Kogman <nothingmuch at woobling.org>)
    CPAN_VERSION 0.10002
    CPAN_FILE    J/JA/JAYK/Catalyst-Plugin-Authentication-0.10002.tar.gz
    MANPAGE      Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication - Infrastructure 
plugin for the Catalyst authentication framework.
    INST_FILE    /usr/share/perl5/Catalyst/Plugin/Authentication.pm

I'll try upgrading and will let you know how it turns out.

Well, I did say I copy/pasted from the documentation, and only changed the
hostnames and passwords (which I won't post to the list anyway).
I'll post the entire kit and kaboodle if the upgrade mentioned above doesn't
do the trick.

as plan B than no plan B.
