Unfortunately I don't think IIS can handle PATH_INFO. In order for this to work, you need:

http://www.surviiivor.com/...1/Survivor_News_F21/

to run forums.cgi and set in the PATH_INFO environment variable '/Spoling_C1/Survivor_News_F21/'. However when you try to go to that URL, you get a 404 file not found meaning IIS is actually trying to find that directory. Apache will realize that forums.cgi is a program, and run the program.

On the Mail Archive demo, I was also able to rename gforum.cgi to just `archive` with no extension. I don't think you can do this with IIS either as is runs the program based on the file extension.

What does the 'path_info permissions in the IIS metabase' control? I'm not familiar with that.

Cheers,

Alex
