 Server won't run Perl scripts (Fasttrack)

You will need this line in your mime.types file:
type=magnus-internal/shellcgi exts=pl

Then if you still get an error message be aware that the FastTrack

I am currently using Netscape FastTrack Server 2.0 and Win95. When I
call a cgi
script from a web page, I get the following message:

This server has encountered an internal error which prevents it from
your request. The most likely cause is a
misconfiguration. Please ask the administrator to look for messages in
server's error log.

When I check the error log in the server, I find the following:

[15/Mar/1997:23:54:51] failure: for host trying to GET
/cgi-bin/calendar_3.0/calendar.cgi, send-cgi reports: could not send new

[15/Mar/1997:23:54:51] failure: cgi_send:cgi_start_exec
d:\server\docs\cgi-bin\calendar_3.0\calendar.cgi failed

I have .cgi and .pl associated with Perl.exe under Win95. The first line
of the
script is correct (#!../bin/perl). I've also tried using Perl32.exe.
I've tried
everything I can think of and I always get the same error messages. I'm
it's something simple, but I've been trying to figure this out for days
and I'm
getting nowhere. I would GREATLY appreciate any help anyone could give
