Actually Dan & Robert,

This is more likely not a permissions problem but a naming problem of the
vlink/tlink problem...

For example if on your test server you were using:


Your Live Server is:


Then you hard coded a link in your pages to goto "/cgi-bin/testsite", when you
go to the live server that link would generate a "undefined catalog error"...

My guess would be that your interchange.cfg catalog definition line is different
from a line you have hard coded in your html/iml pages.

YOu can beat this by using the <A HREF="[area href="page"]">Page</A> command.
This way it always usese the correct catalog vlink/tlink program...
