Looks like the URL you're using isn't properly mapping to the
gliserver4gs3.pl file. Is the web server set up with a cgi-bin
directory? you should have a line like this in httpd.conf:
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/etc/httpd/cgi-bin/"
If so, the directory given as the second argument to ScriptAlias (in my
case '/etc/httpd/cgi-bin') is where the .pl file should go.
If not, you need to add this line to httpd.conf first (should also work
in .htaccess), plus a Directory block like this:
Allow from all
