How to publish non-standard files to Unix Servers

When using nonstandard files, such as CGI scripts or Perl programs that will be published to a Unix server, FrontPage needs to know how to send the files to the server. As CGI scripts and Perl programs are standard ASCII, their extensions need to be added to the service.cnf file found in the _vti_pvt directory located under the root web which is most commonly found at drive:\webshare\wwwroot.

To set additional ASCII extensions, open the file "service.cnf" using an ASCII editor such as Notepad. Find the entry "vti_txtextensions" and append the file extensions for your scripts or Perl programs. For example, in "vti_textextensions:SX|.*.txt.bas.c.h.pl.cgi.", we have appended ".pl.cgi." Please note that the ending period is required.
