How to configure -MCPAN to use FTP proxy server?

I need to install perl modules on some new servers that
use an FTP proxy server. To manually FTP to a remote
host, you need to use your active directory (ntid) in
conjunction with the remote hosts user name and password
like this:

Username: remoteusername@ntid@remotehost
Password: remotepassword@ntpassword
How do you configure perl to handle installing modules
using an FTP proxy? Essentially what I want to do is
something like:

perl -MCPAN -e 'install Net::SNMP'
I vaguely recall at one point being prompted for information
about a proxy server, but I believe it was the first time
I ran -MCPAN.

-Thanks
