laziness, impatience, and hubris PerlMonks

 Need Help??
<html> <body> Recently I wrote a generic log checking script that runs as a CGI on my linux box. I was showing my boss at work and he asked me if I could modify it to run on his machine, running NT 4, as at my workplace there are several flaky servers running servlets, ftp, http and other services, and having a centralised form for checking the logs of them all would be a huge time-saver.

So I made some minor changes, but figured I didn't have to do too many alterations, as I wasn't doing anything "weird" in the script. Yet it refuses to work on NT.

I wrote some simple test scripts, and I believe I have tracked down one of the problems. Is there a special module I need to use to access files through the netBEUI protocol? I did a couple of searches for one, but came up with nothing that really answered my question.

As it stands now, my script fails on this line:

open(FILE,'\\server\path\to\file');
[download]

any ideas? or any favorite resources for CGI programming in win32?

any help would be appreciated
