I too never managed to get any CGI script working under Jigsaw on OS/2.
I gave up trying & cheated by running a second server on port 81 that 
does allow CGI to work.

I am very keen to find out if anyone else ever gets a CGI to work under 
Jigsaw & OS/2. I know some folk have succeeded on other platforms than 

In my CGI calls I tried REXX scripts and 'C' executable. My problem has 
been that the call just hangs (not Jigsaw, just that call).

Cheers & good luck - Doug Marker
