Because CGI scripts are a potential security risk, web.mit.edu and www.mit.edu maintainers do not allow the general public to run scripts on these servers. So, you cannot run a CGI script from your Athena account.
Since CGI scripts require a server to run on, you'll have to find a private web server which will allow you to run your scripts.
SIPB has developed a service to allow CGI scripts to be run on their scripts.mit.edu server. For more information on this service, see http://scripts.mit.edu/.
|scripts.mit.edu is not an IS&T supported service. If you have any questions about this service, please contact SIPB via the contact information given on that page.|
