Hi,

You need to start by fixing the exceptions in the GLI client window.
Open a browser window and visit:

http://<your-machine-name>:<port>/gsdl/cgi-bin/gliserver.pl?cmd=get-script-options&script=pluginfo.pl&xml=&language=en&listall&un=<username>&pw=<password>

What output do you get?

Regards,

Michael
