First of all, Softcom.net is running on a Linux box, so you would probably want this posted in the Unix section. However here is some help.
Yes, you do need to have Perl installed for this product to work, as it is written in Perl. Being that it is on a Linux system tho, I would find it hard to believe that they would not have Perl installed.
You should probably find out whether or not you are given CGI access from the softcom admin. And finally, forbidden usually means that you have permissions set wrong on your files/directories. I suggest reading the readme.txt file that is in the base directory of your unzipped files.
Hope this helps.
